Free legal services for Kitsap County
- posted: May 28, 2020
Kitsap Legal Services provides civil legal advice and information to the residents of Kitsap County experiencing economic hardship. Even if you were earning a good income last year, KLS helps people whose current income is 200% of the national poverty level (a little more than $2,000 per month for a family of one). Typical requests involve family law, housing, and debt/bankruptcy. However, the help they can provide depends on the specialties of their current volunteer attorneys.
Safe appointments are available. Just call KLS at 360-479-6125 or email [email protected] If you qualify for services, you will meet with a volunteer attorney by phone or video conference.
Are you anticipating a problem when the Eviction Moratorium is lifted?Joanne Sprague, Executive Director, advises: “We are currently ramping up our Housing Justice Project in anticipation of a deluge of eviction cases after the Eviction Moratorium is lifted. We encourage tenants anticipating an eviction to reach out as soon as possible.”
KLS always welcomes legal volunteers and donations.
