Volunteer Legal Services - Free Legal Advice Phone Clinic
Volunteer Legal Services’ in-person legal advice clinics are temporarily suspended. However, individuals can receive nocost legal advice over the phone through licensed attorney volunteers. Depending on the type of case and eligibility, an individual may qualify for additional legal services.
Applicants will receive a call from a licensed attorney on Tuesdays between 9am and 1pm or Wednesdays between 5pm and 8pm. Attorney volunteers help with civil legal problems such as divorce, child custody, wills, eviction, bankruptcy, and more. We do not help with criminal, immigration or fee-generating cases.
