If you are seeking representation, please be aware that clients must qualify based on income and case type, which must fall within the Foundation's set guidelines. The Foundation does not provide service for any clients who can afford a private attorney. Additionally, the Foundation has residential requirements. The Foundation does not offer specific legal advice; rather, if a client falls within the income guidelines and case restrictions, the Foundation will attempt to place the client's case with a volunteer attorney. The Foundation cannot guarantee representation to any client, because it depends on volunteer attorneys to handle the cases.
If you have any additional questions, please refer to our FAQ, or call us during our normal business hours.
