Due to the current health crisis in our communities, ALS is taking the following steps to help keep our clients, employees, and communities safe and healthy to enable us to continue to serve clients.

ALS offices will be closed to all walk-in clients effective immediately until further notice, however staff will continue to provide services, and new applications are still being accepted by phone or through online intake. All outreach services are temporarily suspended during this time, and staff will work with existing clients for individual meetings if necessary. Please make sure that you reach out to the Court if you have a hearing scheduled as each individual tribal court has instituted their own policy for priority cases and rescheduling.

If you or someone you know needs legal help, please call 1-800-422-1335 or 218-335-2223 to complete a phone application. Clients may also apply on-line (or get a copy of our paper application on-line to print and fax) via the Get Help pages above.

Please know that our services will continue during this time. Our team is available to support and respond to the needs and concerns of existing and new clients. As always, we are working to ensure high-quality and critical legal aid services continue. We understand that low income individuals will face additional and unique legal problems during this crisis and we will be there to advocate for them.

ALS will monitor developments and act accordingly. We will also continue to provide updates on social media or post on our website for additional or changed information. Feel free to reach out for any questions you may have.
