Legal Services Drop-in Hours
Our legal services drop-in hours are a place for people to come if they have legal questions, or want SRLP to represent them in legal issues.The main issues we work on are name changes, changing id cards and birth certificates, immigration issues, public benefits like welfare and SSI, and advocacy for prisoners.
WHAT YOU SHOULD EXPECT:
First, a lawyer, legal intern, or community member will meet with you. If you have never been here, before, or have a new legal issue, that person will do an intake with you, where we get basic information about you and your legal issues. We use this information to help improve our legal services and make sure we are doing the best we can to address the legal needs of our communitty members.
Our first priority is to help you answer your legal questions and get all the paperwork you need. If you need information or representation with issues that we are not knowledgeable about, we will try to find you an appropriate referral. In some cases, we can take you on as a client and represent you. The cases we take most often are name changes for people with criminal convictions, immigration cases, public benefits cases, and prisoner advocacy cases.
