Who We Are

Public Human Services Attorneys (PHSA) is a professional organization of attorneys who represent the state and local government agencies that administer human services programs. PHSA facilitates the exchange of information between attorneys and promotes innovation in the human services sector.

The American Association of Health and Human Services Attorneys (AAHHSA) voted at their 2022 annual conference to change their name to the Public Human Services Attorneys (PHSA). This name change reflects a refocus on their work within the human services sector and the communities they serve.

Our Purpose

To advocate for and enact policies and practices that enhance the delivery and quality of human services programs. PHSA encourages the discussion of legal matters and the cordial exchange of experience and knowledge, allowing for an acceleration of learning and the generation of practical solutions.
