How We Help
Legal Aid of Nebraska provides both electronic tools as well as in-person clinics for certain types of legal issues where Nebraskans may be empowered to help themselves solve their own legal issues with limited assistance or no assistance from our attorneys.
A2J Walk-In Centers
In response to COVID-19, Legal Aid of Nebraska is taking precautions to limit possible exposure to our employees and clients. As a result, all Legal Aid Access to Justice (A2J) Self-Help Walk-In Centers will be closed until further notice. Staff continues to work remotely. Our statewide phone lines are still available at our Call For Help page.
Both the Omaha and Lincoln offices of Legal Aid operate Access to Justice (A2J) Self-Help Walk-In Centers several days a week. Through the A2J Self-Help Centers, Legal Aid helps low-income Nebraskans help themselves to gain justice. Legal Aid seeks to empower individuals to take action on their own behalf and increase the likelihood of achieving a positive legal outcome by providing the knowledge and resources to help people understand and navigate the civil legal system. Pre-registration is not required, but a brief application form will need to be filled out when you arrive. The Lincoln and Omaha self-help centers are first-come, first-serve.
Monday through Wednesday, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
