Apply for our services

Our mission is to protect access to justice for people in poverty. Because we have limited resources, we can only serve some of the people who ask for help. People who have income that is higher than our limit usually cannot be served by us, but there are some exceptions. We encourage anyone to apply for our help.

In addition, we do not help with all kinds of cases. Instead, we have a list of program priorities which we follow in determining which case types we will handle. The cases we try hardest to accept are those that affect basic human needs such as food, shelter, medical care, and income. We can't help with criminal cases (including tickets), and we are prohibited by law from providing representation where an attorney conflict of interest is present.

Apply in person

For most applicants, please apply in person from 1:00 to 3:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Over 60?

People over 60 should contact our Senior Law Service to set up an appointment. It's easy, and it's free.
