At the Legal Advice and Referral Clinic (LARC), clients get a 10-15 minute consult with a volunteer attorney who can give some basic advice, pointers, and further referrals if needed. Attorneys from the following specialties are typically present: bankruptcy, business issues, consumer, contracts, criminal, employment, estate planning, family, housing, immigration, personal injury, probate, and others.

Clients can also call the Bar Association of San Francisco/JDC main intake line at (415) 989-1616 with questions.
