The Third Judicial District Court recognizes that people representing themselves often need legal advice, something court staff CANNOT offer.

The Court sponsors clinics that give someone who has a court case filed at the Third Judicial District Court an opportunity to ask legal questions about their case.  Clinics are one-on-one meetings with a local, private volunteer lawyer.  No appointments are taken; services are on a first-come first-served basis.  Each clinic is limited to 7-10 people; time with the volunteer lawyer is limited to 15 minutes.


Volunteer Lawyers at the Legal Advice Clinics CAN:

  1. Talk to you about your case (but only civil and domestic cases).
  2. Answer legal questions.
  3. Strategize with you about how to represent yourself.

Volunteer Lawyers at the Legal Advice Clinics CANNOT:

  1. Talk to you about your criminal case.
  2. Talk to you if you already have a lawyer.
  3. Fill out your court forms for you.
  4. Represent you in your court case.
  5. Be a source of unlimited, free legal advice.  

BEFORE coming to a clinic, you might want to try the Court’s Self-Help Center.  We often find that the Center can help you get started and then help identify the best Legal Advice Clinic for you.
