Centro Legal - Mission


Our Mission

Our mission is to improve access to the court system and assure quality legal representation for clients regardless of income, ethnicity, or native language by providing legal education and representation to low-income clients who are in personal transition out of poverty toward safety and self-sufficiency.


Founded in 1991, Centro Legal is a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization located on the south-side of Milwaukee. We serve a diverse group of clients in family law and criminal misdemeanor defense cases. As part of our family law programs, we offer specialized services for victims of family violence. We also serve as Guardians ad Litem for minors in family court and paternity court. We help our clients navigate the legal system, so that they can focus on their family, employment and education. Our goal for our clients is that they maintain stable homes and remain employed in the face of legal difficulties.
