Matt Groves and Legal Aid of the Bluegrass Director Joshua Crabtree talk about the extra days this year when it comes to filing your taxes, and what to do if you haven’t gotten started yet.
Legal Aid of the Bluegrass (LABD,) provides high quality legal assistance through direct representation, education, advice, advocacy and coordination with other community resources. Since 1967, LABG has offered free civil legal aid to the poor and other vulnerable populations in 33 counties in Central and Northern Kentucky. LABG has offices in Ashland, Covington, Lexington and Morehead.
LABG serves low-income families with children, the elderly, veterans and people needing access to healthcare. Their clients are frail and elderly nursing home residents, those suffering abuse at the hands of a loved one, people with a barrier to employment, those who are financially exploited and those that lack the basic necessities of life. LABG clients are particularly vulnerable, often living with the risk of losing something be it their home, job, health, safety or independence. Through the legal system LABG attorneys and paralegals can preserve the home, protect assets, stop the violence, remove employment barriers, and support families towards the goal of achieving maximum independence and safety.
