Legal Information Help Line

About the Help Line

The legal information help line is an automated system of recorded messages giving basic information on more than 30 legal topics, finding an attorney, and the availability of free legal services. More than 7,000 callers contacted the help line last year. The messages are available in English and Spanish.


Volunteers are often needed to monitor and update the help line. If you are interested in participating call 202-737-4700, ext. 3292.
