The Perry County Ohio Legal Clinic offers FREE legal advice to income eligible individuals who cannot afford private counsel. Services will be provided on a first come-first served basis.

At this free legal clinic, you will either meet privately with an attorney, or be instructed by an attorney, who has volunteered his or her time to talk with you about your legal problem. The meeting should end in at least one of the following outcomes, depending on your situation:

  1. The attorney may give you the advice you need to prevent a non-legal problem from becoming a legal one;
  2. The attorney may give you the advice you need to resolve your problem on your own;
  3. If your problem cannot be easily resolved, the attorney may give you the advice you need to better understand your options and to make an informed decision about what to do next in your case;
  4. In rare instances, the attorney may tell you that he or she will continue to work on your case after this evening; or
  5. The attorney may refer you to legal aid or a social services agency for further help with your problem.


Please remember: This is an advice clinic. The volunteer attorney is under no obligation to help you with your case beyond this clinic session. The clinic staff is under no such obligation either. You remain responsible for handling your own case after this clinic, unless the volunteer attorney or someone associated with the clinic specifically tells you otherwise.

Individuals attending should bring:

  • Documentation and paperwork that relates to the issue in question.
  • Proper identification.
  • Proof of income.
