HOW DO I GET HELP?
If you are low-income and have a non-criminal legal problem in Spokane County or Pend Oreille, Ferry, Stevens, Adams, Grant, Lincoln, and Whitman County, call CLEAR (the Coordinated Legal Education and Referral System), toll-free at 1-888-201-1014 . The CLEAR intake line is open Monday – Friday from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Click the following link to go to CLEAR’s web site:nwjustice.org/clear-online.
CLEAR legal advocates may be able to provide you with legal assistance over the telephone. If not, you may be referred directly to the Volunteer Lawyers Program, other legal services program, or another agency if appropriate. Please note that the CLEAR line is very busy, so keep trying to get through.
If you are age 60 and older, you may call CLEAR Sr. at 1-888-387-7111 . There is no income eligibility for receiving service through CLEAR Sr.
The VLP staff will receive the referral from CLEAR, and will contact you by phone. Each client is processed in the order in which they called into CLEAR.
