Lawyer in the Library
Leer en español

Make an appointment to speak to a volunteer lawyer for 15 minutes via Zoom and ask your legal questions. Lawyers can help with questions about family law, probate law, landlord/tenant law, and other general legal topics.

The attorneys are volunteers; you are not their client. There is no attorney-client relationship, and they cannot represent you. After your appointment, do not contact them about your case.

The volunteer attorney cannot help you fill out forms. If you need help filling out forms, we can provide you with information about forms clinics. If you just have procedural questions, Law Library staff may be able to assist you.

If you have an attorney already, you may not take part in the program.

Weekly Program Schedule

We offer 4 different programs. The type of legal issue you have will determine which program you should sign up for.

  • Family Law - Every Tuesday from 5:00-7:00 PM
  • Probate Law - 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month from 5:00-7:00 PM
  • Landlord/Tenant Law - Last Wednesday of the month from 5:00-7:00 PM
  • General Law - Every Wednesday from 5:00-7:00 PM

Be aware that you will speak to the lawyer sometime between 5:00 and 7:00 PM. Please plan for a wait.

Which program does my legal issue fall under?

  • Family Law: divorce, adoption, parentage, child custody, child support, and other family-related legal issues.
  • Probate Law: wills, trusts, and estates.
  • Landlord/Tenant Law: leases, evictions, utility shutoffs, tenants' rights, and other rental-related legal issues.
  • General Law: everything else! Most civil law matters not covered by Family, Probate, or Landlord/Tenant Law, such as traffic tickets, employment law, contracts, civil lawsuits, neighbor disputes, real property, etc.

Register for an appointment

Signups occur on a first-come, first-served basis, and begin on Thursdays at 9:00 AM. Space is limited. A waiting list is available once all the spots are full.

The program takes place on Zoom. You can also call into the Zoom meeting using a phone if you prefer. For safety reasons, you cannot attend the program while driving.

Once you sign up for an appointment, you will receive an email with the Zoom meeting information.
