Arizona has three general services Legal Aid organizations which cover different regions of the state. Community Legal Services (800) 852-9075 covers Maricopa, Mohave, Yavapai, Yuma and LaPaz Counties. Southern Arizona Legal Aid (800) 640-9465 covers Southern Arizona. DNA People’s Legal Services (800) 789-7287 covers Northern Arizona.
All Legal Services programs in Arizona differ, and their criteria for accepting cases vary as well. The legal aid organizations above all have the same criteria of income restrictions and legal status requirements, but do have varying priorities.
The other specialized focus legal service programs typically assist those in the greatest need such as seniors facing eviction or the loss of public benefits. If the legal services program in your area cannot assist you, you may be able to find a lawyer through lawyer referral services in Maricopa County (602) 257-4434 or Pima County (520) 623-4625.
The State Bar also maintains a listing of all Arizona attorneys on their website, and certifies “specialists” in eight legal areas. (Not all attorneys seek such certification, however.) Lists of specialists can also be found at the State Bar of Arizona’s website.
