Not a traditional law firm.

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. Our initial screening and the first attorney consultation are completely free. In addition, we will do our best to connect clients to other legal resources and assist them in determining whether they qualify for free help from those sources.
