Welcome to Memphis Area Legal Services, Inc.’s Website

Harrison D. McIverMemphis Area Legal Services, Inc. (MALS) entered its fifth decade with the same commitment and determination that inspired 30 members of the legal profession in the wake of Dr. Martin Luther King’s death to coalesce around a shared vision to establish an organization whose single purpose was to provide means by which the legal problems of the poor could be addressed.

Today, MALS continues that tradition of "excellence in legal advocacy," as a non-profit law firm geared to provide the highest quality legal assistance possible to the most vulnerable residents of our community. 

Even with a dedicated staff, it cannot meet the overwhelming need today because the "justice gap" is widening exacerbated by the economic woes of our time. As the recent national census reveal, more than 57 million individuals live at or below the poverty line, representing an increase of 14 million since the 2000 census.

While MALS is completely aware of the economics of the times, but notwithstanding, should this community not support legal services to the most vulnerable members of our community – individuals with limited income, largely women and children, the elderly, and the disabled, it will mean the difference in having food , shelter, income and living in a safe and healthy environment.

What can you do? Simply, volunteer your time willingly and generously contribute $325.00 minimally, or just give what you are able to give to the 2013 Campaign for Equal Justice.

Again, welcome to our website and thank you! We hope you find it informative and leave with a better understanding of the various activities and important services we provide our community.
