Legal Assistance

Individuals with disabilities sometimes encounter unfair or discriminatory treatment in the process of obtaining rental assistance, searching for or applying for rental housing, or while being a tenant, and need assistance to assert their rights to fair housing. Likewise, individuals may experience situations where they need guidance or advocacy regarding tenant-landlord issues. The organizations listed below can offer information and guidance, address complaints, and in some cases, provide legal representation on these types of issues.

On this website, we have two categories of legal assistance:

  • Fair Housing
  • Landlord-Tenant

See the Find Resources/Programs Search Form to search by jurisdiction selecting Legal Assistance in the pull-down for Type of Assistance. A new search box will appear directly below it, allowing you to choose Fair Housing or Landlord-Tenant specialties.  (If you don't select one, both types of assistance will be included in the search results).
