Legal Services of Eastern Michigan provides free legal services in civil matters to eligible clients; however, clients may be asked to pay some court costs or out-of-pocket expenses. LSEM provides legal advice and representation in a broad range of areas including consumer cases, family matters, fair housing problems, government benefits such as SSI, Food Stamps, and Medicaid, and other “non-fee-generating” cases. LSEM does not handle “fee-generating cases” which are handled by private attorneys. In these cases there is an agreement where the private attorney will be paid if there is a judgment or settlement for money damages.
LSEM does not handle criminal matters. If you are low-income and are charged with a crime, contact the court to ask for appointed counsel.

ABA Death Penalty Representation Project
Civil Rights/Prisoner Issues
Goals of the program are to raise awareness about the lack of representation available to death row prisoners, to address this urgent need by recruiting competent volunteer attorneys, and to offer these volunteers training and assistance. We also work for systemic changes in the criminal justice system that would assure those individuals facing death are represented at all stages of the proceedings from trial through clemency by qualified, adequately compensated counsel.
