Legal Aid provides a full range of legal services to our client community. We represent clients in civil legal cases, as well as carry out advocacy for low-income groups. We participate with social services agencies and other groups to improve public policy affecting low-income people. Legal Aid provides exemplary legal assistance to our vulnerable neighbors in Hamilton, Butler, Clermont, Warren, Brown, Clinton, and Highland counties.
