Welcome to Our Site
The Indianapolis Legal Aid Society, Inc. (“ILAS”) welcomes you to our site! ILAS is a nonprofit organization known for providing the highest quality legal representation to people in need. Since 1941, we have proudly and ably served families and individuals of modest means. ILAS was the first organization in the state of Indiana to resolve civil legal matters – for clients who qualify – in cases involving the rights of children, mothers, families, disabled persons, and the elderly. We have a reputation for successfully helping families – women seeking protective orders, couples wishing to adopt, elderly citizens wishing to resolve housing issues so they can remain in their own homes, and grandparents wishing to properly care for their grandchildren through guardianships.
We deliver hope to Central Indiana’s most vulnerable citizens when they need it most and when they have nowhere else to turn. ILAS provides superb civil legal assistance and we are the only public service law firm in Indiana where a client talks to a lawyer usually within three business days of scheduling a consultation. Our services include family law, housing, property, and a host of other issues. Some potential clients who come to us do not qualify for an ILAS attorney; in those instances, we refer them to our panel of private attorneys who accept reduced fees.
We are non-ideological, non-sectarian, and deliver our services without reliance on the government. We do not accept fee generating cases or criminal matters. ILAS is funded through United Way and private contributions. We are committed to becoming a self-sustaining nonprofit.
If you are a potential client and are seeking help resolving a civil legal dispute, please contact us to determine if you qualify. If you are a potential donor, we invite you to explore our website and call our Director of Development to learn more about ILAS. As we enter our 7th decade of making a real difference in the lives of families and individuals in need in Central Indiana, we do welcome your partnership.
John Floreancig, General Counsel
