What is civil legal aid?

Vermont Legal Aid can help with civil legal problems (not criminal) like: eviction, foreclosure, health care, discrimination, disability services, civil rights, public benefits, bankruptcy, and problems with landlords or creditors.

We cannot help with traffic matters or defend you in a criminal case, but we do represent victims of crime or abuse in criminal cases and Relief from Abuse cases.
