What is CLC’s Legal Helpline?
Children’s Law Center's Legal Helpline is available during regular business hours to provide information to DC residents and to assist attorneys representing children in DC’s Family Court. Through the Helpline, Children's Law Center attorneys provide legal information, advice and referrals on issues related to our work – child welfare, education, health care access, child custody, guardianship and adoption.
Foster, kinship and adoptive parents seeking legal representation and parents referred by a pediatrician can talk with a Helpline attorney to determine if they are eligible for free representation from Children's Law Center.
Helpline callers with legal questions outside of our areas of expertise are provided with information about other agencies or resources in the DC community that may be of assistance.
Helpline can be reached at 202-467-4900 option 3.
Helpline hours are Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Steptoe & Johnson has had a very close relationship with the Children's Law Center since its formation. The cases CLC refers are truly compelling, and the many attorneys who have worked on them over the years have been deeply touched by the experience. It is also a pleasure to work with the CLC staff, all of whom are extremely knowledgeable, and always ready to mentor pro bono attorneys.
