CLA is Charleston's first nonprofit, sliding scale law firm. We do not provide free legal services, but we will work at a price that those of moderate means can afford. Hourly rates are determined on an individual basis by a client's income and family size (more info here). Our initial screening and phone consultations with an attorney are completely free. In person 1-2 hour case consultations and limited assistance sessions are available for a flat fee of $50-$100.
