I. LEGAL ADVICE CLINICS: attorneys interview clients, identify issues, confer with a mentor, and then give advice on a range of civil issues.
Olympia Legal Advice Clinic: 2nd and 4th Tuesdays 6 -9 p.m.
Domestic Violence Survivors' Legal Advice Clinic: 1st Thursday and 3rd Tuesdays, 6-9 p.m.
II. HOUSING JUSTICE PROJECT: attorneys provide advice, negotiation, and in-court representation for residents facing eviction, every Friday except Court holidays. Project starts at 8:30 a.m. to meet clients and cases are heard by the Thurston County Superior Court at 10:30 a.m. Cases are usually complete by noon.
We also provide legal advice on landlord-tenant matters at this clinic.
III. DIRECT REPRESENTATION.
A. MENTORING is perfect for attorneys who have special expertise in a practice area, are unable to take more clients but who are willing to take calls from other attorneys.
B. REPRESENTING low income clients is a rewarding experience. We work with volunteer attorneys to find a mentor or other supports when that is desired.
