Pisgah Legal Services Staff

Pisgah Legal Services has a team of 42 dedicated staff members, including 18 staff attorneys.  Many PLS staff members could find less stressful and more lucrative jobs elsewhere, but they choose to work at PLS because they believe deeply that all people deserve access to justice and they see the difference that civil legal aid makes for low-income people who have nowhere else to turn.
