When calling the helpline, callers meeting low-income & residency criteria receive help in one of two ways:

(1) Law Access lawyers will give immediate information and advice to the caller on the phone,


(2) if possible, they will refer the caller to one of the many cooperating agencies to provide more "in-depth" help with that particular problem and then follow up to make sure the caller got the help they needed.
