DONATE

Legal Aid Society of Eastern Virginia cannot operate without private donations.  In an era of cutbacks, Legal Aid has lost significant amounts of federal funding.  More and more we have to rely on charitable donations in order to meet our expenses.  Without your financial help we cannot continue to offer quality legal representation to low-income Virginians.
