Vermont Legal Aid and Law Line of Vermont provide free civil (non-criminal) legal help to low-income people who live in Vermont. There is no charge for our services.
We can't help everyone who needs assistance. Most of our projects have income limits, and we do not have enough attorneys to help everyone who calls us.
Please contact us to find out if we can help you. We may be able to give you advice or tell you where to find information to help you represent yourself in court.
