Legal Aid

Legal aid provides free civil legal services to low-income and elderly Oregonians. Legal aid addresses high priority civil needs involving food, shelter, medical care, income maintenance, and physical safety. Legal aid services in Oregon are available in all 36 Oregon counties via legal aid offices in 17 communities.
To help survivors of the Oregon wildfires, legal aid created a volunteer lawyer project dedicated to assist wildfire survivors with their FEMA appeals. If you have applied for FEMA disaster assistance and have been denied, legal aid may be able to connect you with a volunteer attorney.
To find out if you qualify for services, please contact your local legal aid office.
Even if you do not qualify for legal aid services, you may seek help, including with your FEMA appeal, through the Oregon state bar’s hotline: (503) 684-3763 or (800) 452-7636
