Pisgah Legal Services

WHAT THEY DO: During COVID-19, and since 1978, Pisgah Legal Services has been a source of hope for people struggling to makes ends meet. We believe that justice is for everyone, not just those who can afford a lawyer. We provide free, civil legal aid that helps people with low incomes meet basic needs, including protection from domestic violence, avoiding homelessness and accessing health care. Pisgah Legal helps more than 18,000 people annually across WNC with 29 staff attorneys and approximately 300 volunteer attorneys.


  • The first 10 donors who donate $25 or more will receive a $10 gift card to City Bakery.


  • All gifts made to support Pisgah Legal’s COVID-19 response work are being matched dollar for dollar, through the end of 2020, up to $200,000 by generous donors.
It makes me feel good knowing that I have full legal guardianship of my brother and sister. I was there when they were born. Even if my mother hadn’t passed away, I would still have that special bond with them. Pisgah Legal was such a big help — especially during this COVID time — not to try to figure out how to pay for a lawyer, search for the right one and figure out which one is best.
