Brief Advice Clinics

CANCELLATION NOTICE: Due to COVID-19 virus concerns, LASC is canceling all of its Brief Advice Clinics through April 11, 2020.

If you have a time sensitive legal matter that cannot wait until clinics restart, please call one of our intake lines–614-241-2001 or 1-888-246-4420–to determine whether additional help is available. We are adding services to address critical needs. Please check this page often for ongoing updates.

If you are a community partner with questions about a cancellation, please email Dianna at .

LASC assists individuals in the areas listed below. If we are unable to help you, consider attending one of our “Brief Advice” clinics in the community, where you will have the opportunity to meet with a volunteer attorney.

The attorneys participating in our clinics are only available to provide information, advice, and referral. To receive this free service, you must have a total, gross household income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines ($4184 monthly for a household of 4). You must also have assets below $25,284 (not including the home you own and live in or the car you drive for primary transportation). Individuals who attend LASC-sponsored clinics must also be citizens, lawful permanent residents (bring a copy of your green card), asylees or refugees (bring copy of green card of I-94), or meet another exception.
