Intake Checklist

To apply for legal assistance, you (the client) will need to call our office at 1-877-402-2299. With your permission, someone can be on the line with you to help you place the call. Our screener will conduct an interview to get basic information about you and your legal problem. 

If it is determined that you are eligible for our services, the screener will conduct a complete intake, asking more in-depth questions about you and your case. This process can take up to 45 minutes. Your case will then be referred to a CLRP staff member who may give you advice only or may represent you at administrative hearings or in court proceedings.

If you are not eligible to receive our services, we may be able to refer you to other agencies or resources that can provide legal assistance.
