Below are answers to common questions you may have about your visit and receiving legal help at your appointment.

We can help you with any legal question. We are the best place to start to help you know what to do next. The most common areas of legal help we provide include:

  • family law
  • housing
  • evictions
  • contracts
  • wills
  • guardianship
  • criminal records
  • criminal reentry issues
  • consumer problems
  • immigration
  • employment
  • government benefits
  • and a variety of other legal issues.

We offer three levels of service: legal, social, and spiritual. Our legal help is limited engagement assistance. This means the lawyer represents you in a limited capacity. They will coach you on a specific next steps plan for your circumstance but not represent you on an ongoing basis. Our social assistance is resource coaching provided by a client advocate to ensure you have additional support as needed. Our spiritual assistance is optional and consists of prayer and the offer to connect you with a church.
