A Voice for the Poor


Abstract:
The article offers an overview of free legal services to poor citizens of the state involved in civil cases. Funding comes from the federal government, atypical from local sources, and an individual is eligible if his income is no more than 125 percent above the federally defined poverty threshold. Within the state such matters are dealt with by the North Carolina Legal Services agency.
