Our Mission: New Haven Legal Assistance Association, Inc. (LAA) is an organization of attorneys and paraprofessionals who work together to provide high-quality legal services to individuals and groups unable to obtain legal services because of limited income, age, disability, discrimination or other barriers. We will provide these services using the most appropriate means available to meet client needs, including litigation, administrative and legislative advocacy, and community education.
LAA's goals are:
- To insure that members of LAA's client community have equal access to judicial, administrative and legislative forums for the remedy of their problems and the resolution of their disputes;
- To achieve long-lasting improvement, and to prevent deterioration, in the rights and living conditions of significant segments of the client community;
- To foster our clients' ability to protect their own rights and to participate in decisions which affect their lives.
