Once an applicant’s legal matter has been assessed in our intake process, the advising attorney may recommend a clinic appointment. Clinics are a group setting where eligible clients are instructed on or assisted with paperwork and given legal advice about their individual legal matter. Appointments to clinics are best suited for less complex legal matters. In some limited circumstances, cases are chosen from clinics for representation.
Eligible applicants of our Santa Ana service area seeking assistance with family law matters may be referred to the Santa Ana Family Law Case Assessment Clinic. This clinic deals with family law petitions only (divorce, paternity, etc.). Individuals in this service area seeking assistance with Requests for Orders (formerly known as Orders to Show Cause) are assessed for assistance through office appointments.
