Toledo Legal Aid Society and Lucas County Board of Commissioners Announce Launch of New Toledo Legal Aid Website 

Special to The Truth

 

 The Toledo Legal Aid Society is pleased to announce, in collaboration with the Lucas County Board of Commissioners, the launch of a new website. This new site, www.toledolegalaid.com, will be a fully functioning instrument helping underserved populations better navigate the legal system. 

 

Sean McNulty, Chief Public Defender of the Toledo Legal Aid Society, said:

 

“Assistant Public Defenders with the Toledo Legal Aid Society represent juveniles and indigent adults that are charged with criminal, traffic, and delinquency matters in Lucas County.  Our office has been implementing many changes in the way that we provide legal services to our clients.  This website will assist our office in providing even better representation to our clients through increased communication and access to information and resources.”

 

The website will have contact information for those in need of services, as well as provide external links to the dockets of Lucas County Court of Common Pleas, Toledo Municipal Court, Maumee Municipal Court, Oregon Municipal Court, and Sylvania Municipal Court. These links will facilitate access to important court information for those in need of assistance. Frequently Asked Questions, as well as further resources related to non-criminal legal assistance and reentry are also provided on the website. 

 

The development and launch of the website is part of the MacArthur Foundation Safety + Justice Challenge initiative spearheaded by Lucas County and committed partners and stakeholders. The $1.75 million grant has been used to build a safer, healthier, and more just community. The website will provide a new avenue of access to the justice system for those who need it most.

 

Commissioner Carol Contrada said: 

 

“Through the MacArthur Safety + Justice Challenge, Lucas County has had remarkable success in building a safer and more just community. The Toledo Legal Aid Society and our Public Defenders have been tremendous partners throughout the SJC Challenge. We are committed to legal representation for all as guaranteed by the United States Constitution, and this website will help protect individual rights by providing easy access to legal representation.”
