Legal Clinics


* Help you get the legal information you need to be able to make choices about your life circumstances.


* Help you understand whether or not you need to retain an attorney to help with your situation by exploring what legal options and non-legal remedies may be available to you.


* Provide you with information about other legal resources in the community that you may not know about.


Legal Clinics offer free, private and confidential consultations with experienced attorneys about most civil legal topics, held at community agencies.


  • landlord tenant disputes
  • labor and employment issues
  • disabilities
  • civil rights
  • immigration
  • discrimination

All consultations are provided in private and confidential settings by attorneys whose area of practice includes the type of problem you are experiencing.


Legally Speaking Workshops


What is Legally Speaking?


Legally Speaking is a free service of The Legal Project offered to community groups and organizations. The aim of our program is to provide community members with the legal information they need for situations where legal representation may not be necessary or where a greater understanding of the legal system is needed.


What topics will be covered?


The Legal Project will provide speakers to cover virtually any legal topic that your group is interested in. Each workshop is custom designed to meet your group's needs. Lawyers from our community who routinely work in the area of law that you are interested in are our speakers.


All programs and services have specific eligibility requirements.  Please call us for more information at (518) 435-1770.
