What is an Advice Clinic?

An advice clinic is a free, 30 minute consultation with a volunteer attorney.

It takes place either at the office of a local attorney who has donated their time to see clients, or at the Legal Aid office.

Bring your legal documents and the legal forms you have filled out. The attorney will need the facts of your case and will probably want to review your documents. The attorney will advise you on how to proceed with your case.

Prepare specific questions about the legal issues, documents or how to fill out your forms. Bring your questions to the advice clinic.

Our volunteer attorneys will provide advice and coaching on how to proceed with your case on your own. They will not prepare documents or represent you in court. It is best to take careful notes and complete the paperwork and procedures that the attorney suggests.

Clients can schedule as many advice clinics as they need to complete their case.
