About Senior Legal Services Project

Provides free legal services to seniors aged 60 and older in San Luis Obispo County through the Senior Legal Services Project.

- offers individuals confidential advice and counsel by appointment.

Senior Legal Services Project is especially concerned that those most in need receive assistance housing needs (landlord-tenant, evictions, nursing homes and board and care situations), and protection from elder abuse situations.  The Project also helps clients in financial distress deal with aggressive creditors.  The Project refers estate planning needs, such as wills and trusts, to private attorneys; however the Project does help clients prepare Durable Powers of Attorney for finances and Advance Health Care Directives.  Services are available, however, regardless of income status.

Family Law Advice Clinic

Volunteer attorneys provide free legal advice on matters of family law to eligible SLO County residents who meet California State Bar income guidelines for free assistance and lack legal representation at the time of their appointment.

Attorneys are available by appointment only, on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, from 4PM to 6PM at the SLO College of Law campus, located at 4119 Broad Street, Suite 200, in San Luis Obispo. A $20 intake fee will be assessed prior to the appointment to secure a time slot.

To make an appointment, or for more information about eligibility, please call 805-548-0794, or click here to request an appointment online. Prospective clients must either call this number directly, or schedule an appointment through the link above, as there are no “walk-in” legal services available.

Veterans Assistance Program

In collaboration with Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo and other community partners, SLOLAF provides free legal assistance to eligible veterans who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in an effort to help the veteran make a successful transition to permanent housing.  Please call (805) 237-0352 to be connected with a CAPSLO case worker who can help determine eligibility.

Program Components include:

Case managers work with participants and match unmet needs with resources both internally and externally. Follow up and retention services are available to participants to provide sustainability.

SSVF staff participates in local job fairs, Stand Downs, Veteran organization events, community functions, and collaborates with additional service providers to reach Veterans.

Legal Alternatives of San Luis Obispo provides participants with individualized counseling services to help resolve housing barriers and assist with other civil legal issues.

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
