- You can visit an SLLS office. Find the office nearest you from the list of SLLS offices on the right side of this page.
Some offices limit hours for intake.
It is a good idea to call before you go to an SLLS office. When you go, bring your papers about your legal issue with you, especially if you have court papers.
If you have any emergency, we will see you as soon as we can. We ask that you call first if your problem is not an emergency. When you come in, bring any and all papers you have about your problem.
What to do if you are unable to come to an SLLS office in person.
If you are disabled or you cannot travel to one of our offices, call us to arrange a telephone intake interview.
Here is special information for emergencies.
You can lose important rights by waiting too long to get help. If you have an emergency, such as a hearing or appeal deadline, call our nearest office and explain. If you have an emergency and cannot reach us by phone, come to the nearest program office with all the papers about your problem.
