Columbia Legal Services (CLS) is a nonprofit law firm that protects and defends the legal and human rights of low-income people. CLS represents people and organizations in Washington State with critical legal needs who have no other legal assistance available to them. For information about CLS’s mission and work for clients, please see About CLS and Our Work.
Columbia Legal Services advocates for people living in poverty. We work to reveal and end actions that harm our client populations; we seek social and economic justice for them through systemic change. CLS, directly and in concert with the Alliance For Equal Justice, provides legal assistance in the full array of civil justice forums to enable our clients to assert the rights and exercise the responsibilities inherent in a just society.
CLS is part of the Alliance for Equal Justice, a coalition of legal services providers working to address the critical legal needs of low-income people. Please see Partners for more about the Alliance for Equal Justice.
