Common Ground Legal Clinic

What:

Common Ground Legal Services provides two weekly Legal Clinics for individuals to meet privately with an attorney in a confidential setting to receive brief advice, counsel, and referrals. A crisis worker may also be on hand to assist with crisis intervention. Services are free of charge and open to the public. There are no appointments required, however, attorney consultations are based on availability, i.e. the number of attorneys volunteering at the clinic that day. Please be sure to arrive early.

Who:

Anyone seeking legal assistance. All legal issues are welcome.
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. The legal clinic does not have any income requirements. People receiving services do not have to live in a specific county or area. Legal advice can be given in a wide range of practice areas including, but not limited to: family, landlord/tenant, bankruptcy, probate, and criminal law
