Volunteer attorneys will answer legal questions at no cost from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesdays via a LegalLine clinic, sponsored by the Dallas Bar Association. To participate, complete the online form found here. A volunteer attorney will call the participant to provide up to 15 minutes of free legal information for your legal issue. Space is limited. Registration will close each Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. NOTE: Beginning July 1, weekly registration will close on Tuesdays at 12 p.m.
Please note that the volunteer attorney will remain anonymous. Participants should watch for a call from an unknown number that should be labeled "No Caller ID" or something similar. No attorney-client relationship will be established. We cannot guarantee that the attorney will speak any language other than English. Individuals may also receive referrals to local, legal, or social service agencies.
The State Bar of Texas, the state’s legal aid agencies, volunteer organizations and access-to-justice organizations have created a toll-free legal assistance hotline for low-income individuals and families across Texas dealing with civil legal problems because of the pandemic. Those interested can call 800-504-7030 toll-free for help wherever they live in the state.
