Talk to an attorney at one of ELAP’s free legal clinics. Legal clinics are one-time appointments to meet with an attorney to get resources or advice on a specific topic.

Leave a message with your name, phone number, and a brief description of your legal issue. We will return your call within 72 hours from a private, unmarked phone number and leave you a message if you don’t answer. If you qualify, you will receive an appointment at one of our clinics. We provide free interpretation in many languages.
