Transforming Lives

Through free legal aid, advocacy and education, we seek justice for the most vulnerable in our community.

Your support can change lives.

The need for representation in the Denver area far exceeds our capacity. With your help, we can serve more clients and provide the representation everyone deserves. We provide numerous volunteering opportunities, educational and fundraising events, and partnership opportunities to connect your passion and expertise to women surviving abuse and oppression. 

Seek Justice. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly.

We are the Justice and Mercy Legal Aid Center (JAMLAC), a faith-based nonprofit. Since 2006, we’ve served 20,000 low-income community members with legal services in the greater metro Denver area. We provide full civil legal representation, legal consultations, advocacy and legal workshops that help survivors, immigrants and other clients seek justice.

Areas of Service

Full Civil Legal Representation

For those who qualify, we provide attorney representation for family law, immigration law, and limited civil matters. Access to an attorney is one of the most important factors in determining if a survivor of domestic abuse returns to an abuser.

Holistic Advocacy

We understand clients may need support beyond legal matters. JAMLAC partners with numerous organizations throughout the Denver metro area for holistic care through these stressful situations. JAMLAC’s bilingual navigator will help find the right partner for each individual’s situation.

Legal Workshops/Clinics

JAMLAC offers 12 clinics across the Denver metro area where volunteer attorneys provide legal advice on various matters. In addition, we offer workshops on specific civil topics, such as our quarterly Naturalization workshops, to inform and educate people on their options.

Want to lend a hand?

JAMLAC’s programs are made possible through the generous support from caring community members and volunteers.

Get Involved

You do not need a legal background to make a difference. We provide local attorneys with meaningful avenues for pro-bono representation. And, we welcome volunteers not in the legal field to help with events, serve at workshops or provide administrative support.


Individual and corporate donations are essential to providing our services. We welcome all contributions and will guide you through the options that best fit your situation. Whether one-time or monthly, the process is quick and easy.

Our Story

In response to the significant need, JAMLAC opened in 2006 and served 96 clients in the first year. Today, JAMLAC is changing the lives of over 1,800 people per year, 85% of whom have experienced abuse. Our faith directs and motivates us to advocate for vulnerable people.
