Founded in 1978, HALT – An Organization of Americans for Legal Reform, a nonprofit, nonpartisan public interest group of more than 50,000 members, is the nation's largest and oldest legal reform organization. Dedicated to the principle that all Americans should be able to handle their legal affairs simply, affordably and equitably, HALT's Reform Projects challenge the legal establishment to improve access and reduce costs in our civil justice system at both the state and federal levels.
Since 1978, HALT has provided self-help books and public educational materials to help citizens understand the legal process and better manage their legal affairs. Its self-help series includes Using a Lawyer... And What To Do If Things Go Wrong, Do-it-Yourself Law, The Easy Way to Probate, Small Claims Court, Real Estate, Trusts, If You Want to Sue a Lawyer: A Directory of Legal Malpractice Attorneys, and Everyday Contracts."
