General Intake Sites

Where You Can Go For Help

Legal Aid has two offices in the District of Columbia – in Northwest and Southeast – where we meet people who are seeking legal help on all of the types of cases we handle. To apply for legal help, please come to one of our intake locations during the hours listed below. We may also be able to assist you if you come to one of our specialized intake locations.

We usually meet with people on a first-come, first-served basis during our initial interview times, so you may have to wait to meet with someone. Please bring with you all of the documents and paperwork you have about your case or legal problem. If you have a disability that prevents you from coming to one of our offices, please call (202) 628-1161, and we will make reasonable arrangements to accommodate you.
