Legal Clinics

Free Legal Clinics

Legal clinics give general legal information and brief legal advice. You can also get help with forms, and ask questions about the law. Most legal clinics handle civil law matters only.

If you do not find the help you need here or need to hire an attorney, see the Finding Legal Help web page.

Talking to someone at a legal clinic is not the same as hiring an attorney, because the attorneys there will not take your case or represent you in court. Going to a legal clinic can help you decide if you can handle the matter on your own, or if you should hire an attorney.
