Legal Aid Society Maui
Thank you for the availability of legal services. My roommate recently asked me to leave for no good reason. I am currently renting (for four years), with my current status on my part of the utilities. Volunteer attorneys and an Americorps attorney provide limited legal information to assist unrepresented litigants in district and family law civil matters. Assistance is provided on matters related to landlord cases, debt collection cases, district and family court injunctions, divorces, custody and other matters. Support may take the form of providing court forms, reviewing court documents for interpretation, or ensuring that forms have been completed correctly. In addition, volunteers try to answer as many procedural questions as possible. The Hawaii Legal Aid Society is a nonprofit public interest law firm dedicated to achieving equity and justice through legal advocacy, outreach, and education for those in need. As our vision indicates, we live in an unjust or, at best, not yet just society, with structural inequalities, economic injustice and unequal access to the justice system. To address this, we focus on essential legal services for those who need them, whether through direct services, helping people help themselves, advocating for others, or educating people. The provision of legal services is our unique contribution. You can apply online, by phone at 800-368-1019 or by mail.
