Thank you to the Toledo Community Foundation, The Blade, and the Nonprofit Resources Center for naming ABLE and LAWO a Nonprofit of Excellence. This video was provided courtesy of Buckeye CableSystem.

The following video was produced by LAWO and ABLE in 2007.

Approximately 368,000 low-income people live in northwest and west central Ohio. Many have legal issues that go unresolved because of limited resources. As law firms for the poor, our work is to improve the lives of people who have no place else to turn.

Featured in this video are some of our clients, advocates, and justice system leaders such as Honorable Walter H. Rice, Sr. U.S. District Court Judge (Southern District of Ohio), Chief Justice Thomas Moyer, Ohio Supreme Court, and Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, District 9.
