Need Help?

Our program’s individual clients typically have annual incomes around 200-250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Our Community and Economic Development Law Clinic represents community organizations and small businesses that would not otherwise be able to afford legal representation. Our Intellectual Property Law Clinic represents low-income and under-represented individual creators and users of intellectual property, small businesses and communities of rights-holders and consumers, not-for-profit institutions, and associations in copyright, trademark, and patent matters.

Those seeking legal assistance in the D.C. metro area may contact us at 202-274-4140 during business hours. Please be advised that we do not give legal advice to people who are not our clients, and we do not accept walk-in intakes. We are staffed by law students, so except for federal tax cases (which are accepted year round), we do not take new cases over the summer or during the winter break.

For easy access to accurate information about legal problems and sources of free legal help, see LawHelp DC (for the District), the People’s Law Library of Maryland (for MD), and VALegalAid (for Virginia). For other states, go to the national LawHelp site and select your state.
