Attorneys will also be able to assist with domestic violence injunctions, name changes, small claims, foreclosures, and evictions. Legal consultations will not be provided for criminal, juvenile, guardianship or mental health cases. The Legal Aid Society attorneys cannot represent the customer in court.
