The Small Claims Self-Help Clinic provides free limited legal assistance for low to moderate income individuals and businesses with small claim issues. Thomas Jefferson alumni attorneys and law students provide half-hour consultations to litigants who need assistance when being sued, suing another party, or help recovering money for a small claims judgment. The small claims issues must involve monetary claims for $10,000 or less. The type of claims the Small Claims Self-Help Clinic provides assistance with includes, but is not limited to, landlord tenant, consumer, personal injury, and breach of contract claims. The clinic does not provide assistance for non-claims issues, including evictions, restraining orders, divorce, child support, injunctions, and traffic tickets.
At this time Small Claims Self-Help Clinic is in recess for the Winter break and will resume in January 2017. For questions call (619) 961-4371.
