District Court Self-Help Resource Centers

The District Court Self-Help Resource Centers provides free limited legal services for people who are not represented by an attorney.

Who can we help?  An individual with a legal problem. We cannot help relatives or agents of the person with the legal problem as well as businesses, including sole proprietorships, LLCs, third parties, and personal representatives.
