Legal Clinic

At the Common Ground Legal Clinic, attendees can receive free consultations, informed recommendations, and referrals from volunteer licensed attorneys. Direct representation is not available.*  All legal issues are welcome, and even if there is not an attorney on-site who specializes in a particular area, we will do our best to connect the attendee with resources or referrals for additional legal assistance.

 

As much as is possible, we try to adhere to a first-come, first-served policy. No appointment necessary. Please bring all paperwork with you. A crisis counselor is generally on site (subject to availability) to meet with attendees as well. The time and location of the clinics, which are held twice a week, follow:
