Request for Assistance Form

Do you have an attorney assisting you with this matter?

If so, they must contact us directly.

Please fill out this form as completely as possible.

LDF is an organization with limited resources, and we can only accept a small percentage of the many requests for assistance that we receive. We will respond to you if we may be able to assist you.

All legal claims have deadlines. For some civil rights violations, you may be required to file a notice or pursue options with a government agency before you can file a lawsuit in court. If you do not comply with time deadlines or notice requirements, you could be legally prevented from pursuing your claim in court. Contacting LDF for legal assistance does not stop these deadlines or eliminate the need to file notices. If you have an urgent need or must meet a deadline, contact a private attorney, your local public defender, or your state’s bar association. DO NOT WAIT for a response from LDF.

Nothing on this website should be considered legal advice. Contacting LDF for legal assistance, including the completion of this form, does not create an attorney- client relationship. LDF is not your lawyer.
