How to Get Legal Help

Need legal help?

1. Call us at 1-800-889-2047. This is a toll-free call.

An intake specialist will get basic information about you and your legal problem. If we can help you with your legal issue, you will be referred to a paralegal or lawyer at Legal Services Vermont or Vermont Legal Aid. Our services are free. 

We can’t help everyone who needs help. We may not be able to help you based on your income. We may be able to give you advice. We may be able to tell you where to find information to help you represent yourself in court.

2. Visit our legal help website at VTLawHelp.org.

The website also lets you connect with us to ask for help. It answers questions about Vermont law and how to solve your legal problem. It includes court forms and information about Vermont courts and court procedures. VTLawHelp.org was created by and is maintained by Legal Services Vermont and Vermont Legal Aid.

Our offices are closed on Thursday, July 4.
