Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas

Mission
It is the mission of Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas to ensure equal justice for people living in poverty through the provision of high-quality legal representation and to improve the lives of poor people through the rule of law.
Company Overview
Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas (LANWT) is a nonprofit organization that provides free representation on civil cases to low-income people throughout North and West Texas. LANWT’s staff attorneys provides free civil legal services to income-eligible residents in 114 Texas counties from branch offices located in Abilene, Amarillo, Brownwood, Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth, Lubbock, McKinney, Midland, Odessa, Plainview, San Angelo, Waxahachie, Weatherford and Wichita Falls. The administrative office is located in Fort Worth.

Description
In 2011, Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas marked 60 years of delivering high-quality legal services to the communities it serves. Because it does not have the resources to accept all applicants for services, LANWT regularly assesses the needs of its client communities. Among LANWT’s 2014 case priorities are consumer, domestic violence, education, employment, housing, individual rights, and public benefits.

General Information
Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas is funded primarily by the Legal Services Corporation and the Texas Access to Justice Foundation. Additional funding is provided by federal, state and foundation grants and through the generosity of private donors. 

LANWT also operates a telephone intake service from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday - Friday at 888-529-5277, and conducts community intake sites at a number of locations throughout our service area.

Our staff and volunteers are committed to the delivery of effective and efficient legal services. Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas also offers significant educational opportunities and experiences for high school, college and law students, as well as retired members of our community.
