Legal Action Works (LAW)

LAW provides legal services to low-income families who could not otherwise afford legal representation to handle family crises and evictions. 



Resolving legal issues increases the level of safety, security and stability for our clients and their families as they work toward lifting themselves out of poverty. Fees are based on a sliding scale for those who do not make enough to pay for traditional legal services.

Our team assists with family law and some civil matters within DALLAS COUNTY ONLY.

We now also handle eviction cases within the CITY OF DALLAS ONLY.


Please email us at CitySquareLaw@CitySquare.org to request an application.

Make sure to include your name, phone number, and type of case for which you need assistance. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we are not taking walk-in appointments.
