Civil/Family Brief Legal Advice
CLICK HERE to view the Mobile Legal Clinic calendar
The Mobile Legal Clinic travels to host sites, including libraries, food pantries, and social service organizations to provide legal advice where community members already gather. We provide assistance at several recurring host sites once a month. Some legal clinics are open to the public, while others serve only those who are registered to receive services through the host site. See descriptions in the Mobile Legal Clinic calendar for more information.
Brief Civil/Family Legal Advice
Brief civil/family legal advice clinics operate on a first-come, first-served basis. These clinics can assist with legal questions related to evictions (including eviction records), housing, small claims, debt/collections, probate, wills, powers of attorney, guardianship, divorce, child support, placement, custody, and more. We do not provide representation, go to court with clients, or assist with filing court forms/e-filing.
Volunteers aim to provide quality service to as many clients as possible, but we may not have time to assist everyone. If that happens, you can visit one of the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinics, which offer the same services at recurring host sites each week. Click here to view their walk-in hours and locations.
Do you need a will, power of attorney for finances, power of attorney for health care, or a medical directive? Estate planning clinics are held once a month at rotating host sites. Visit the Mobile Legal Clinic calendar for dates and locations. These services are offered by appointment only.

Eviction Records Clean-up
Was your eviction case dismissed or dismissed by agreement? You may be able to seal your record. The Mobile Legal Clinic can help assess your eligibility in our brief civil/family legal advice clinics or at legal clinics dedicated to eviction records. Please bring any case numbers you want to review.
