Snohomish County Legal Services

Did you know?

  • More than three quarters of low income households experience at least one important civil legal problem annually.
  • Of those who experience civil legal problems, more than 85% of the time these persons receive no legal assistance of any kind. Nine out of 10 low-income people who do not get attorney assistance receive no help at all with their legal issues.
  • Civil legal problems experienced by low income people in Washington generally affect basic human needs such as housing, family safety and security and public safety.
  • Civil legal needs are disproportionately experienced by women, children and members of vulnerable population groups.
  • For many thousands of low-income families, basic promises guaranteed them under the laws of this state - promises to personal and family safety and security, fair treatment by landlords, employers, and creditors, and fair and proper treatment by governmental agencies - are unenforceable because they cannot secure the legal representation needed to effectively assert, defend or enforce these promises.
Snohomish County Legal Services is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
