Legal Counsel

All services are available in multiple languages and available on a sliding scale.


Legal Assistance

We provide advice sessions or “limited scope representation,” which will give you the information you need to move forward in resolving your legal issue. We do not provide legal representation in court.

We may be able to provide assistance in the following areas:

  • Landlord/tenant disputes
  • Small claims/contract matters
  • Civil harassment restraining orders
  • Family law consultations and referrals
  • Employment disputes
  • Understanding the worker’s compensation process
  • Name changes
  • Guardianship and conservatorship matters
  • Immigration screening and services
  • Know Your Rights and Be Prepared education
  • Access and complete court forms
  • Legal referrals

If we cannot provide the assistance you need, we will do our best to refer you to an agency who can.


We also offer conflict resolution services in the above areas, in which parties discuss their dispute with the assistance of a trained mediator who will assists them in reaching a settlement.
