Organizations mentioned/involved: Legal Aid of Northwest Texas
Heidi Marsala, managing attorney, stated Legal Aid provides a variety of legal services to its clients.
“We are able to assist with most civil litigation. Nothing criminal. No personal injury. Nothing political. No class actions. Most of our cases are something that we would not want to compete with a private bar,” Marsala emphasized. “We are wanting to stabilize families and want them to maintain their living arrangements, help them get out of domestic violence situations to be safe. Help them be able to obtain and maintain employment.”
Even though Legal Aid can only help with civil cases, exceptions can be made for immigration matters relating to domestic violence, human trafficking, or other U-Visa or Violence Against Women’s Act issues.
