Printer-friendly versionSend by email

New Hampshire Legal Assistance (NHLA) is a non-profit law firm offering legal services in civil matters to seniors and eligible low-income persons. NHLA provides high quality legal services to vulnerable low-income people, ranging from simple legal information and advice to vigorous and thorough representation in all of New Hampshire's courts and before many of the local, state and federal agencies which play large roles in the lives of low-income people. In providing legal services to the poor, NHLA helps balance the scales of justice for all citizens.

NHLA chooses cases that are likely to have the most positive effect on both the individual client and on others with the same legal problem. NHLA does not have the resources to accept all applicants for our legal services even within the priority areas we have adopted. To best serve our clients, we are continuously reassessing our priorities and looking to identify issues that affect low-income and elderly residents of New Hampshire.

These are the current NHLA program priorities, listed in alphabetical order:

  • Benefits
  • Domestic Violence
  • Housing
  • Inmate Representation
  • Seniors
  • Youth Law

NHLA serves all of New Hampshire across the state. Office hours are 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.
