Seeking Help?

For legal help, you may be interviewed by phone when you call, or advised to come in for an in-person interview, or asked to leave your name and number so that you can be called back when an intake advocate is available. Please have all documents relating to your legal problem available at the time of your first interview. If you need special accommodations to access our services, let us know how we can help you.
