Providing a full range of free expert legal services to low income people in the Roanoke Valley facing critical civil injustice.


Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

-Martin Luther King, Jr.



"Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the facade of the Supreme Court building, it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status."
- Lewis Powell, Jr.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice (ret.)
During his tenure as President of the American Bar Association

"But more than anything else, we have learned that legal assistance for the poor, when properly provided, is one of the most constructive ways to help them help themselves."

- President Richard Nixon, 1974
