Good Samaritan Advocates (GSA) provides free legal counsel on most legal issues to those who cannot currently afford a consultation with an attorney.
During a one-hour confidential meeting with a Good Samaritan Advocates lead attorney and other team members, key background information and documents will be reviewed so that the client's legal issues can be identified, prioritized, and an action plan developed.
GSA provides clinic-based services through volunteer attorneys, so we are not normally able to respond to time-sensitive emergencies or represent clients outside the Clinic.
Where matters cannot be resolved in the initial meeting, the lead attorney may suggest a follow up clinic appointment or may provide referrals to other attorneys or full-time legal aid services in the area, or appropriate social service agencies. In rare cases the attorney may take on the matter personally for further pro bono assistance .
Legal clinics are held on the second Saturday of every month at Covenant Life Church. Good Samaritan Advocates is not able to accommodate clients on a walk-in basis, so an appointment is required. For more information or to make an appointment please email Olga Couturier, or call the church office.
