WELCOME TO JACKSONVILLE AREA LEGAL AID (JALA)
In 1937, the organization that has become Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, Inc. (JALA) was born when a group of Jacksonville Bar attorneys banded together to provide legal services to those who could not otherwise afford them. In 1973, Jacksonville Area Legal Aid was officially named, and in 1976 JALA achieved 501(c)3 status.
Today, JALA is a non-profit law firm of 35 attorneys specializing in providing civil legal assistance to low-income and special-needs individuals and groups. A non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, JALA is an equal opportunity service provider and does not discriminate in respect to race, sex, national origin, religion, disability, or age.
JALA has three offices in Northeast Florida: Downtown Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Green Cove Springs (inside of the Clay County Courthouse).
