The Equality Ohio Legal Clinic
Equality Ohio often hears from LGBTQ+ people who are in a bind; sometimes because Ohio’s laws leave them out, and sometimes because many systems just aren’t set up to serve LGBTQ+ people.
The legal clinic offers many free legal services, like consumer law (such as fraud and identity theft), family law, civil rights, administrative help (such as SSI or disability) and more.
We also offer affordable online CLE courses for practicing attorneys, and general knowledge courses for the public.
In order to be represented by a lawyer from the legal clinic, your income must be within 300% of the federal poverty level.
