Advice & 咨询诊所


It is estimated that about 70 percent of individuals requesting free legal assistance require only brief services—not full representation—to solve their legal problems. The D.C. 酒吧公益中心的建议 & 转介诊所服务 pro se individuals the opportunity to discuss with volunteer attorneys certain kinds of matters governed by D.C. 或者联邦法律, including bankruptcy/debt collection, consumer law, 就业法, family law, health law, housing law, 人身伤害, probate, 公共利益, and tax law. All services are provided free of charge.

The clinic is limited to providing general information, advice, 简短的服务, and does not provide representation.

Providing “brief services” may not always be achievable by the end of the clinic session. For example, calling a third party or government agency to ascertain information about a client’s matter, writing a demand letter to a landlord or a judgment-proof letter to a creditor, or reviewing a contract or settlement agreement may require some of the volunteer attorney’s time after the clinic. However, clinic volunteers do not appear in court or otherwise establish an extended attorney-client relationship unless they wish to do so.

If brief service is not enough to resolve the problem or if a different type of service is required, clinic volunteers attempt to refer individuals to, 或提供有关, a legal or social service provider appropriately suited to handle the case.

Local legal service providers also benefit from the Advice & 咨询诊所, since it lessens the number of individuals walking into their organizations, allowing those practitioners to spend more of their resources representing clients instead of providing general information, advice, 简短的服务.
