Please fill out the SBLC Intake Form. This will start the process of coming through one of our four programs. The SBLC may be slow to respond for the next two weeks due to staff vacations. We will be back to our prompt responses by September 2021. Please understand the demand for services outstrips availability and there will likely be a wait to be seen by an attorney.
Pro Bono Project and Intern Program clients pay a $25 administrative fee per matter. In addition to the administrative fee, clients who exceed our Pro Bono Project income guidelines but are eligible for Intern Program will be charged additional fees on a sliding scale basis. Start-up businesses are also required to submit a business plan. The Fee for Service Program is charged on an hourly basis. The fees for all three programs will be discussed at the initial client intake, and will be outlined in the client’s Representation Agreement.
Our patent program serves a few clients each semester. Competition for the few slots is quite competitive. Applications are now closed for the spring semester. We hope to open the application again in July. Every semester, only a small portion of the applications are accepted.
Due to the volume of clients, no drop-in help is available.
Please call us to see if you have any questions at 503-768-6940.
