Steps to Apply: 

  • Please call during intake hours only: Monday - Friday 9:30 am - 3 pm @ 410-690-8128
  • You will be screened for eligibility based on your income and type of legal problem. We do not provide legal advice over the phone.
  • We will mail you an application. Once we receive your completed application, $25.00 non-refundable application fee (cash or money order ONLY) and proof of income we will review your case for eligibility and if determined eligible, we will start looking for a volunteer lawyer.
  • Because we rely on the generosity of volunteers to accept a case when they are available, we cannot guarantee we will find a lawyer for every client.
  • If you have a trial or hearing scheduled, call us as soon as possible to increase the chance of us finding you a volunteer. Do not wait until just before your trial or hearing. We cannot handle emergency situations.
