3. Philadelphia VIP Legal Clinic
Getting legal advice is costly, even to understand what you need from your legal counsel. VIP helps to organize legal clinics where volunteer attorneys and law students can provide short-term legal assistance, advice and education to clients in the community. These clinics happen regularly and help provide limited legal services and assistance to clients in their own neighborhoods. If you don’t know where to start with legal assistance, this is a good place to start.
