Donate to MALS

Civil Legal Aid assures fairness for all in the justice system, regardless of one’s financial status.  Memphis Area Legal Services, Inc.(MALS) assists people of all backgrounds and ages, including families, children, veterans, seniors, ill or disabled people and women or men who are victims of domestic violence.  They often find themselves adrift in the judicial system at risk of consumer fraud, foreclosure, eviction and denial of veterans and public benefits – to name a few.  MALS provides access to legal help for people to protect their livelihoods, their health and their families.  Even though we close nearly 4,000 cases every year, sadly still too many people are turned away due to resource limitations.  Read about some of our client stories.

Supporting the Campaign for Equal Justice:

Access to legal services is important to all members of our community but without legal help, the most vulnerable members of our community – women, children and the elderly – find themselves adrift in the judicial system.  You can help with a donation today.  Learn more about the Campaign for Equal Justice.
