The Legal Aid Society of Birmingham is a non-profit law firm that represents children and low-income individuals who need representation in dependency, juvenile delinquency, misdemeanor, traffic and drug court cases.
The Legal Aid Society does not accept cases directly from the public, but rather by court appointment. Our staff attorneys at the Jefferson County Family Courts in Birmingham and Bessemer serve children as guardians ad litem in abuse and neglect (dependency) cases and as defense counsel in juvenile delinquency cases. The Legal Aid Society's municipal court attorneys represent indigent adult defendants in the Tarrant Municipal Court. We also represent adult defendants in Jefferson County Drug Court who participate in rehabilitation services.
