  • Unmet Legal Aid Needs

    In this story from The Intelligencer, reporter Jo Ciavaglia spoke with LASP''s Executive Director  Liz Fritsch about  the unmet legal needs of the poor, focusing on Bucks and Montgomery counties, and the ongoing efforts ofLASP to address these needs in the face of diminishing resources.

     

  • Proposed Cuts to Legal Services Corporation

    President Trump's FY2018 "budget blueprint" released in March proposed defunding Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The full budget proposal released on May 23 has called for LSC's elimination, allocating only enough  to conduct a closeout.

    LASP is facing a potential loss of 40% of its budget which would mean deep cuts in services for residents in each of the counties that we serve. This includes services to seniors victimized by consumer scams, women needing protection orders from abusive spouses, and veterans seeking earned benefits who turn to civil legal aid offices for help. If you have questions about how funding changes may impact LASP, please contact our Executive Director Elizabeth Fritsch at efritsch@lasp.org.
