TRANSGENDER LEGAL CLINIC

What is the Transgender Legal Clinic?

The Transgender Legal Clinic offers free consultation with a volunteer attorney. Attorneys can help you understand your legal problem, suggest possible options, and provide appropriate referrals. These attorneys will not represent you in court. We serve all parts of Washington State, and all appointments are held over zoom, with phone options available. See below for additional options related to language, disability, and safety accommodations. 

Do I need an appointment?

No.  This clinic is drop-in only.  However, if you plan to attend we ask that you register ahead of time to receive the zoom link.  This helps to protect our clinic users from zoom-bombing and other security concerns.  Registering does not obligate you to come on any particular date; once you have the link you can attend any clinic date you like. 

Who can use the Transgender Legal Clinic?

We will not check your gender before you use this legal clinic.  However, we ask that users of this clinic self-identify as transgender, non-binary, gender diverse, Two Spirit, or gender-fluid in some way.  This helps ensure that members of those communities have access to this clinic.  If you need legal assistance but are cisgender, please use our LGBTQ2S+ Legal Clinic.

The Transgender Legal Clinic does not charge fees. Our volunteer attorneys offer a FREE consultation! 

Many of our volunteer attorneys and clinic assistants are part of Washington’s transgender or LGBTQ2S+ communities.  They are also specially trained to discuss legal issues commonly faced by members of our diverse communities.   

Our Transgender Legal Clinic appointments are held over zoom, but we can make exceptions in some circumstances if that format is not accessible for you. We work with both volunteer translators and a phone interpreter line which can accommodate most languages. If you need ASL interpretation or any other form of disability-related accommodation, or if you do not have access to a safe place to hold a phone conversation during the clinic appointment time, please email us at clinic@qlawfoundation.org.

NoWe are a supportive and affirming space for our communities to get assistance with any legal question you may have.  We do not typically provide representation in court, but we can refer you to an attorney who can assist you if that is what you need.
