A Message from the Executive Director

Alison Paul

The Montana Legal Services Association (MLSA) thanks you for viewing our website. For over 45 years, MLSA has provided free civil legal aid to thousands of Montanans living in poverty. MLSA’s dedicated advocates achieve safety for domestic violence survivors and children, prevent illegal evictions and foreclosures, help families access health care, inform those struggling with debts about their rights, protect public benefits for the basic needs of people without other resources, and more.

Using nationally recognized practices and technology, MLSA provides aid across a vast rural state, including on Tribal Nations. MLSA takes cases that improve clients’ lives and the lives of others with similar issues. Through advocacy and strategy, MLSA provides opportunity for all low-income Montanans to rise out of poverty.

From this website you can learn about MLSA’s mission and vision, about the staff and board, about our legal work and projects, how to get legal help and apply to MLSA, how to volunteer and/or make financial contributions to support our work, and more.

Thanks for taking the time to find out more about MLSA. We look forward to working with you to improve the lives of Montanans living in poverty.
