Legal Advice Clinics

Legal Aid Society and Nashville Pro Bono Program

Need FREE advice from a lawyer on the spot? Come to one of our clinics. They are open to people with low income who have a legal problem. But we can’t help with criminal problems.

The Legal Aid Society and Nashville Pro Bono Program provide a place for you to go to talk with a lawyer at least once a week. The lawyer will provide advice to you about your problem. The help is free. But we can’t help with criminal cases. You don’t need an appointment unless it says you must call.

Have papers about your legal problems? Bring them. Someone will ask you about your legal problem. They will also ask about your income. But you don’t have to have a certain income to get advice. Then you will meet with a lawyer. How many people can talk to a lawyer depends on how many lawyers come AND how many people come.The address for each clinic is after the box with the clinic dates.
