Free Walk-In Legal Clinics

We are here to help.

The DC Volunteer Lawyers Project offers free, walk-in clinics throughout the District to make it easy for domestic violence victims and caregivers of at-risk children to speak with a caring and experienced lawyer. We can help with protection orders, custody, child support, divorce, immigration and other matters. All conversations are absolutely confidential and no appointment is necessary!

Feel free to call one of our trained advocates for more information at one of the numbers below or email us at
