The Legal Aid Office provides legal services including family law, consumer law, government

benefit programs, housing, and debtor/creditor issues. Typical cases include guardianships,

adoptions, and child advocacy. The office does not handle criminal, workers’ compensation,

divorces, or personal injury cases. Operating with staff and a group of dedicated

volunteer attorneys and law students, the Legal Aid Office provides services to those residents

of Hinds, Madison, and Rankin Counties who qualify based on income.

“But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” - Amos 5:24 ESV

“Mission First uniquely provides the opportunity for attorneys of faith to do the bidding of the Lord in a safe, professional environment. There is nothing clearer than the admonition of believers to ‘…visit the widows and orphans in their trouble,…’James 1:27 NKJV. This is largely the clientele of Mission First where we, as attorneys, can provide this witness and service for our Lord.”

-William "Bill" Waller, retired Chief Justice of the Mississippi Supreme Court
