Legal Services Vermont- formally known as Legal Services Law Line of Vermont
We changed our name in January 2019 to better reflect the wide range of legal services we provide:
- legal advice on our hotline
- legal education and outreach events
- self-help legal information on VTLawHelp.org
- low-income client support for legal cases that meet priorities
- representation in low-income eviction and debt cases through our Pro Bono Eviction Clinics
- We are also the first point of contact for Vermonters who would like help from Vermont Legal Aid. We screen all incoming requests for help. If we can help with a legal problem, we refer clients to either Vermont Legal Aid or Legal Services Vermont lawyers and advocates. We also refer clients to other programs.
