The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc.’s work is focused on cases involving issues of racial justice. This focus is designed to ensure the broadest impact from our work and to fulfill our mission. With the exception of our capital defense representation, we typically handle cases that affect broad classes of people, not those affecting only an individual, and that seek to further or defend critical legal protections for African-Americans. Our decision not to accept a particular case does not reflect any assessment about the merits of the individual claims.
If you seek legal assistance and believe that your situation may fit the characteristics described above, you may write LDF to describe the issues. We will respond to you if we may be able to assist you.
The written submission of details of your situation does not create a lawyer-client relationship between you and LDF or obligate LDF to take any action on your behalf. No attorney-client relationship is established absent an express, written agreement by LDF.
