Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) provides legal assistance to low-income individuals and families in East Palo Alto and the surrounding community. Our practice areas include housing, immigration, and economic advancement. CLSEPA does not provide legal assistance with criminal matters. Call your local Public Defender’s office on bar association to find information about criminal defense attorneys.
We provide legal assistance and advice to over 6,000 community members per year. Volunteer attorneys, paralegals, law students, and community volunteers work with our dedicated staff members to provide life-changing legal services to residents in need.
We are a community-based organization funded by grants and donations from foundations, law firms, legal organizations, and individuals who recognize the importance of providing the protections of the law to those who wouldn’t otherwise have them.
To schedule an appointment, please call our office at 650-326-6440, or for more information, email us at [email protected].
