About Us

     Welcome to Legal Aid Society of San Bernardino.  We are a non-profit organization that has been serving the public for over 50 years.  Legal Aid Society of San Bernardino is a recipient of federal funds awarded by Inland Counties Legal Services with the approval of the Legal Service Corporation.  Our main goal since establishing the corporation is to provide counseling and legal services to indigent community members, uphold the rights and privileges of the indigent regardless of ability to pay, and develop an appreciation and better understanding of the law and the administration of justice.

     Legal issues can be complex and are difficult to deal with by yourself.  We strive on assisting the community in resolving legal issues that are varied in complexity.  Our staff will assist you in completing the necessary application for the qualification process.  Our paralegals, under the supervision of our attorneys, can help prepare the necessary paperwork to be submitted to the court.  Additionally, our attorneys can offer quality legal advice and address any legal questions that arise during the time you meet with our staff.
