The Map locates 817 APBCo member firm office locations, designated by red dots, and 1,728 National Legal Aid & Defender Association (“NLADA”) offices, designated by blue dots. NLADA offices include civil legal aid organizations and public defender offices.
USING THE MAP
Scam the whole map and zoom in on regions/states/cities. The markers indicating law firms and NLADA offices overlap, as there are over 2,500 designations, with many concentrated in urban areas. You can manually grab and scan the map to zoom in on a specific area, and as you do the markers will emerge individually. Clicking on any marker provides that office’s basic information.
The legend in the upper left corner of the map has two searchable groupings (“APBCo Locations” & “NLADA Locations”). You can search these by clicking on the three dots to the left of their titles and choosing “Open Table.” You can then search by firm name, city name, etc. So, for example, if you are looking for legal aid in Salt Lake City, click the dots next to “NLADA Locations,” choose “Open Table,” and search “Kansas City” and you will see contact information for three providers: Utah Legal Services, Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake, Disability Law Center. Similarly, if you want to know which APBCo member’ firms have offices in Tennessee, click the dots next to “APBCo Locations,” choose “Open Table,” and search “Tennessee” and you will see that three firms have eight offices in Tennessee, with the number of attorneys in each, as well as contact information.
GROW WITH US
In addition to adding new law firm information as APBCo adds members as well as updating existing information, we can also add new categories of information. For example, we may be able to add information about particular areas of the law in which NLADA members practice, as well as major collaborations, long-term projects or other areas of expertise that we would like to identify and share among our firms.
We also look forward to building out our map to capture APBCo’s global presence, to reflect the breadth and depth of our membership’s geography and impact across the globe.
