Lawyers can discuss the following issues: bankruptcy/debt collection; civil rights; consumer law; employment law; family law; health law; housing law; personal and property damage; probate; public benefits (SSDI/SSI, etc.); and tax law.

Although the attorney will not be assigned to represent you, you may receive important information about your legal situation. If you are eligible, you may be referred to one of the legal or social services agencies in the District to provide you with additional assistance  and/or representation. However, this clinic does not guarantee that you will obtain representation through one of the referred agencies. Bring all of the documents concerning your legal problem to the clinic.
