Ask A Lawyer Legal Clinic
Free 30-Minute Consultation with an Attorney
The Law Library, in partnership with the Kalamazoo County Bar Association, offers free monthly legal clinics at the Central Library, Powell Branch Library, and the Portage Community Center.
When you sign up for our Ask a Lawyer Legal Clinic, you get a 30 minute appointment with a lawyer. They can answer questions about your legal situation, but they will not take on your case, represent you in court, or answer follow up questions later.
Ask a Lawyer is intended for lower income persons who are not able to afford the full cost of hiring an attorney. For this clinic, “lower income” means an annual income of up to $35,000 for a single person; up to $40,000 for a two person household; up to $45,000 for a three person household; up to $50,000 for a family of 4; and so on.
Because clinic lawyers counsel their clients on many different legal concerns, your attorney may not regularly help people with your particular need. The law library cannot guarantee that your lawyer will be able to help you resolve your legal problem. There are many legal topics that are better addressed by searching for an attorney that practices in the area of law that you are interested in.
You may only attend one clinic every six months or a total of two times per year. Patrons who do not show up for their appointment will be eligible to sign-up again after six months. The clinic is intended for individuals who have not consulted with an attorney and cannot afford to do so.
Registration is required due to limited space.
