If you have a legal problem and desire to speak with one of our attorneys, please call us at (919) 794-7511 to schedule an intake appointment.

At the appointment you will have the opportunity to meet privately with a member of our intake team to explain your legal problem so that we can determine how JusticeMatters might be able to assist you. Please be aware that attending an intake appointment does not guarantee that you will be represented by JusticeMatters.

The conversations we have with you are confidential and JusticeMatters does not report undocumented individuals to immigration officials. Please bring all documents that are relevant to your legal issue to the appointment, as well as proof of your financial status (information regarding your weekly, monthly, or annual income).

Languages: English and Spanish. If you speak another language, we’re glad to work with you through an interpreter.

We are unable to answer legal questions online or over the telephone. If you wish to speak to a JusticeMatters attorney about your legal problem, you will need to schedule an intake appointment.
