Have you heard of Neighborhood Legal Clinics? If not, you may be missing out on a great resource if you live in King County, Washington.
These free clinics, sponsored by the King County Bar Association, provide limited legal advice as well as referrals for residents of the county. If you have a legal issue in King County but do NOT live in the county, you can still participate in one of the free clinics.
The clinics consist of 30-minute sessions during which time you meet with an attorney for legal advice on civil legal issues. You can get help with papers you’ve received from the court. Referrals and additional resources are also provided, if needed.
According to their website, the clinics do NOT provide advice on criminal legal issues, just civil issues.
Clinics are also offered on a variety of specialized topics, such as bankruptcy, elder law, family law, cross cultural family law and domestic violence. You can also sign up for clinics in various languages, including Spanish, Korean, etc.
