Northwest Justice Project CLEAR Hotline

If you are low-income, you can call the the Northwest Justice Project’s toll-free hotline, CLEAR (Coordinated Legal Education, Advice and Referral), Monday-Friday from 9:15 am to 12:15 pm at 1-888-201-1014 to see if you qualify for legal advice or assistance. 

In addition, seniors age 60 or over may call CLEAR*Sr at 1-888-387-7111, regardless of income. Assets limits may apply. Seniors in King County may call 2-1-1.

If you are eligible for their services, your call will be forwarded to an attorney or paralegal for an in-depth interview to assess your legal problem, and be provided advice and immediate assistance if possible. In addition, NJP will determine if you need additional legal help and try to arrange further assistance. Help may be provided by phone and electronically, or you may be referred to a local NJP field office or other legal services program for more help.

NJP CLEAR attorneys will often help a caller by preparing court papers, negotiating on your behalf, and otherwise advocating for you. Read more about Calling CLEAR.
