Getting Help from

Legal Aid of Manasota

Legal Aid of Manasota is the local community resource for free legal help for the needy. Our agency serves the people of Sarasota and Manatee counties in civil matters such as foreclosure problems, housing issues, divorces, civil litigation and consumer credit issues. Educational classes on divorce are offered at no charge and throughout the year we assist with Foreclosure Defense/Attorney Consultations.

Legal Aid of Manasota services the elderly with matters such as living wills, advanced directives, guardianships and healthcare surrogates. We support SPARCC (Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center) in helping women and children free themselves from their abusers and we provide legal aid for area non-profits through the Community Counsel Project.

Eligibility for most services is based on residency and an annual income that meets the federal government guidelines for poverty. We can assist you in determining whether or not you meet the criteria.
