Civil Justice for All Texans
We're here to serve the underserved by making civil justice accessible to every Texan, no matter their ability to earn. Through advice, referrals, counseling, representation, and advocacy—we help Texans navigate the complexities of the civil justice system.
And it is complex.
In a criminal case, legal assistance is your right as an American. Accused of a crime? The court appoints you legal counsel if you cannot afford it. There is no right to counsel in civil matters. That means many of our low-income neighbors find themselves in the courts without any legal representation. These are disputes where they could risk losing their jobs, their livelihoods, their homes, or their children. How can we expect anyone without extensive legal training to navigate that—let alone, have a successful outcome?
“Justice for only those who can afford it is neither justice for all nor justice at all.”
—Texas Chief Justice Nathan Hecht
