Family Law: Due to severe funding shortages, our Milwaukee office does not offer in-person intake for family law problems. We can only take family law cases when they are referred from the Sojourner Truth Family Peace Center. (http://www.familypeacecenter.org/) Others may visit the Milwaukee Justice Center at the Milwaukee County Courthouse or visit their website (www.milwaukee.gov/mjc) for help with family law matters.

Housing Problems:  If you have a Milwaukee County eviction, visit our Eviction Defense Project.  Due to severe funding shortages, we do not offer walk-in intake for other housing law problems.
