The QLaw Foundation GLBT Legal Clinic offers a free 30-minute consultation with a volunteer attorney. Our attorneys are specially trained to discuss legal issues commonly faced by members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, and we welcome all clients regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
The clinic is held on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Consultations are by appointment only. You can make an appointment by calling (206) 235-7235. If you reach our voicemail, please leave a short message with your contact information and we will get back to you.
We can help with any civil legal issue (i.e., not criminal) including, but not limited to:
- Protecting relationships, advising about domestic partnerships, powers of attorney, etc.
- Protecting parental rights, including adoption options
- Dissolving domestic partnerships ("divorce")
- Debt and bankruptcy problems
- Changing legal name and gender
- Discrimination (employment, housing, insurance, schools, etc.)
- Wills and estate planning
We are not able to:
- Provide court representation
- Help those living outside King County, Washington (unless they have a legal issue in King County), but we will try to connect you with resources that can assist you
- Give legal advice over the phone or via e-mail (so please do not send us any sensitive information via e-mail or in voicemail)
