People's Legal Aid is a nonprofit legal services corporation. We provide resources to education, direct referrals to other nonprofit organizations that may be able to assist you, legal consultations for debt collection defense and eviction defense, and legal representation in court. The information collected here will not be shared with any government entity, and any statistics collected will be only used for the purpose of determining qualification for other programs and for applying for grant funding. All personally identifiable information will be removed before the information is added into our statistics. The attorneys that volunteer for People's Legal Aid are required to maintain their own legal insurance, and if they agree to take your case, your case will be managed by their individual law firms and People's Legal Aid will only provide resources if needed. This form is not intended to create an ongoing attorney-client relationship between you and an attorney or between you and People's Legal Aid. If it is determined that People's Legal Aid will represent you, you will be provided with an engagement letter in a separate document.
The questions below are optional, but are used to identify programs that may be available to you. If you chose to not answer a question, it will be assumed that you do not wish for us to attempt to qualify you for programs that require an answer. No other inferences will be made about your election to answer or not.
If you have questions about this information sheet, please ask for help. Be sure your answers are as complete and accurate as possible. All the information given on this sheet or to the volunteer attorney is strictly confidential!
