Southern Arizona Legal Aid Inc. (SALA) provides quality low-income community members with free civil legal services in nine of Arizona’s 15 counties.
Gila County is served by SALA’s Lakeside office White Mountain Legal Aid. SALA provides civil legal assistance for actions like evictions, guardianship, debt collection, vehicle repossession, foreclosure, and family law matters.
SALA has a Victims of Crime program (funded by a Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant). The SALA attorney who runs this program is in Globe on the second Wednesday of the month and meets with clients by appointment only.
This program serves victims of crimes such as domestic violence or sexual assault, or any crime that is related to divorce, custody or child support.
You can sign up for assistance with getting Orders of Protection, Temporary Orders of Support and Custody, divorce, intervention with creditors, safety planning, and potentially other civil legal services.
If you are the victim of crime and need legal help, contact the SALA VOCA program for an appointment by calling 1-800-640-9465 ext 4189.
If you have other civil legal issues and live in Gila, Navajo or Apache County, contact White Mountain Legal Aid to see if you qualify for assistance.
