Free Legal Clinic
Vineyard Legal Clinic Update
Over the years, the number of people who wished to see our volunteer lawyers has been much greater than the number of volunteers. In fact, the demand has been so great, that it has been very difficult to meet with everyone who hoped to discuss their needs with a lawyer.
In order to better meet the needs of our visitors and our volunteers, starting on Monday October 6, 2014, everyone who wishes to meet with a lawyer will be required to come to the Clinic, in person, to complete an informational form.
Your informational form will be reviewed by our volunteers in order to determine whether your needs fall within the scope of the services that the Clinic offers. You will be contacted to let you know whether or not we are able to help you.
Subject to volunteer expertise and availability, consultations in the following are provided:
NOTE: No divorces or custody fights.
- Minor criminal matters (including sealing of criminal records)
- Civil protection orders (CPO)
- Landlord-tenant disputes (no evictions)
- Micro-entrepreneurial services
If your request is one that we can serve, then you will be contacted and given an appointment for the following month to consult with a lawyer. If selected, you will receive a consultation and advice in order to help you better understand your legal rights and how to help yourself.
The Vineyard Free Legal Clinic provides legal assistance for those who cannot afford a lawyer. (Low income individuals at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines.)
In exceptional cases, a lawyer may agree to represent you. Representation depends on the nature of your legal issue and the expertise of our volunteer lawyers.
As always, the Legal Clinic meets on the first Monday of most months (except holidays). The doors open at 5:30, and volunteers are available at 6:30. If you have any questions, please come to our Clinic, and a volunteer will assist you.
THE NEXT CLINIC WILL MEET ON MONDAY, AUGUST 1. NOTE: THERE IS NO CLINIC IN JULY.

- Deferred Action for Parents of US Citizens ("DAPA") (currently on hold)
