Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas has been proudly serving North and West Texas since 1951. We are an I.R.C. Section 501(c)(3) nonprofit Texas corporation, funded primarily by the Legal Services Corporation, the Texas Access to Justice Foundation and the United Way. LANWT also accepts and receives grants and donations from private and public entities.
LANWT provides free civil legal services to eligible low-income residents in 114 Texas Counties, with offices in Abilene, Amarillo, Brownwood, Dallas, Denton, Fort Worth, Lubbock, McKinney, Midland, Odessa, Plainview, San Angelo, Waxahachie, Weatherford and Wichita Falls. The program operates a telephone intake service and conducts community intake sites at several locations throughout our community.
Our staff and volunteers are committed to the delivery of effective and efficient legal services. LANWT also offers significant educational opportunities and experiences for high school, college and law students, as well as retired members of our community.
