Legal Aid of West Virginia (LAWV) is the state`s leading provider of civil legal aid and advocacy services. Our mission is to ensure that the most vulnerable among us – low-income families, the elderly, victims of domestic violence, people with disabilities – have an equal chance to obtain justice, in the courtroom and in their communities. Legal aid receives grants so that we can provide free assistance. We do not charge a fee for our services, but if we take over your case, you may have to pay some legal fees or other related expenses. To receive help from lawyers and legal aid staff, you usually have to meet certain eligibility criteria. In general, you must be considered a low-income OR a victim of domestic violence to be eligible for assistance from our civil legal aid program. There are exceptions, so if you`re not sure, call to apply. You can apply online or by calling 1-866-255-4370.
