www.legalaidhawaii.org Helping the people of Hawai‘i meet their legal needs since 1950. As the state’s oldest and largest non-profit, public interest law firm with offices statewide; Legal Aid helps ensure justice and fairness for all by providing civil legal aid to the most vulnerable in our society.
In working towards the vision of building a just society; we want to first help make the legal system a little less intimidating by providing easy to understand legal forms and brochures, including online forms that people can use when they go to court. Second, we help people help themselves by providing legal assistance so people can better know their rights and know how to solve their legal problems. Finally, we try to level the playing field by providing legal representation to those that need it the most.
The project was funded by a grant from the Technology Initiative Grant of the Legal Services Corporation and created in partnership with the Hawaii Access to Justice Commission and Hawaii State Judiciary. Thank you to pro bono attorney Ashlee Drake Berry, William S. Richardson School of Law students Laurie Gardner and Evan Fu, and volunteers Bennett Wong, Kayla Caliboso, and Dana Morita for all of their help on this project
