The Small Claims Self-Help Legal Clinic
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 and current students provide half-hour consultations to individuals involved in a matter before the Small Claims Court, which resolves claims below $10,000. These claims may include landlord tenant disputes, consumer law issues, personal injury, and breach of contract claims. The Small Claims Clinic does not provide assistance for non-small-claims issues, such as evictions, restraining orders, divorce, child support, injunctions, and traffic tickets.
