Advocating Justice for all for over 60 years.


Legal Aid does not accept cases directly from the public but by court appointment only. Staff attorneys at the Jefferson County Family Courts in Birmingham and Bessemer serve children as guardians ad litem in abuse and neglect (dependency) cases and as defenders in juvenile delinquency cases. Legal Aid's municipal court attorneys represent indigent adult defendants in the Tarrant Municipal Court. We also represent adult defendants in Jefferson County Drug Court who participate in rehabilitation services.
