Juvenile Justice Project

Manager: Patrick Carraher

The Juvenile Justice Project is located in the Lincoln Office of Legal Aid of Nebraska. Legal Aid has a contract with Lancaster County to provide legal representation to parties in the Separate Juvenile Court of Lancaster County. This project has been serving Lancaster County for more than three decades.

The Juvenile Justice Project provides attorneys to serve as Guardians Ad Litem, or counsel, to parents and children in law violation cases, abuse/neglect cases, and truancy cases.

If you are involved in the Juvenile Court System in Lancaster County and unable to afford an attorney, you can complete a “Request For Court-Appointed Counsel” form with the staff at the Juvenile Court.
