Southeastern Ohio Legal Services®


Southeastern Ohio Legal Services (SEOLS) is civil legal aid.  Civil legal aid helps keep our justice system fair for all regardless of how much money you have.

SEOLS provides access to legal help so people can protect their livelihoods, their health, their homes and their families. SEOLS provides legal assistance for people who cannot afford an attorney through representation and easy-to-understand information about your legal rights.  This includes information about how to get into court, what to do when in court or what to do when dealing with government agencies. SEOLS also provides easy-to-complete legal forms.

We provide help with health benefit issues, school problems, housing issues, employment problems, utility questions, family law problems, consumer problems, cash benefit issues and other issues. SEOLS also assists groups of low-income people and other community partners to improve the lives of low-income people and families.
