Clarence Darrow Court Clinic

Community Legal Aid has partnered with the Trumbull County Bar Association and seven local Trumbull County courts to meet the need of low-income residents facing housing and financially related legal issues.

Applicants do not need to have a pending legal action to qualify. If you live in Trumbull County and have concerns over housing or debt related issues, or if you are facing an eviction, foreclosure, or consumer/collection lawsuit in a Trumbull County Court, you are encouraged to apply.

Due to public health concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Clarence Darrow Court Clinic is operating by phone only.

Appointments to speak with an attorney are scheduled between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Call (330) 983-2584 to see if you qualify or apply online.
