Volunteer Lawyers Network connects people experiencing poverty with trained volunteer lawyers, who provide advice, brief services or representation in court.

When you call our intake line at 612-752-6677, one of our intake counselors will ask you questions about your case, your income and where you live to determine if we are able to help with your legal issue.

If we cannot help, intake staff can sometimes provide referrals to someone who can.
