Northwest Justice Project (NJP) provides eligible low-income individuals with free legal help including legal advice, education, limited legal services, self-help materials, referrals, and representation. NJP has several specialized programs that serve distinct populations such as survivors of domestic violence, Native Americans, farm workers, persons over 60 years of age, and others. In some cases, clients may be asked to help pay some of the costs of a court case, and this will be discussed beforehand. Apply for services by completing the online application on the NJP website, or call their intake and referral hotline called CLEAR (Coordinated Legal Education Advice and Referral). Persons aged 60 and over can call CLEAR*Sr at (888) 387-7111. The Tri Cities office serves Benton, Franklin, Walla Walla, Columbia, Garfield, and Asotin counties.
Included in this list are organizations that provide free or low-cost legal services to victims of abuse and others who qualify. Even if the organization does not have a lawyer available to represent you in court, you may want to ask if there is a lawyer who you can consult with to get advice. Please note that we list the organizations by the town/city or county where the office is located – however, many offices may likely serve multiple counties. We indicate the “counties served” whenever possible. You can click “View All” to look through the complete list of organizations.
