Prairie State Legal Services offers free legal aid to low- and middle-income individuals. The availability of a civil lawyer can make all the difference for our neighbours struggling to stay home, escape domestic violence, get benefits for veterans or people with disabilities, or many other legal challenges that are central to their safety and well-being. Walk-in or personal call and check-in hours: All potential customers can call or visit the Oshkosh office from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on any normal business day. As we serve rural counties and travel times can be very long, we recommend that people call us before heading to the Oshkosh office. However, it is not mandatory. Leave the legacy of promoting access to justice for all. Approximately 690,000 people in our service area live in poverty. They have families, hopes and dreams. They are your neighbors.
They live in the communities they call home. Our churches are a better place for all of us when help is available, when it is needed. Every day, Illinois residents are denied the basic rights to which they are entitled under the law simply because they cannot afford a lawyer. It`s our mission to change that.
