Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia (CLCP)

We have started legal clinics in North and West Philadelphia housed in ministries that have served the needs of their local communities for many years. Clinic clients receive a free one-hour consultation where they meet with one of our licensed volunteer clinic attorneys. Where appropriate, the attorney will offer to pray with the client and address spiritual and family concerns which may be at the root of the legal problems. Where ongoing representation is indicated, we coordinate referrals to qualified counsel through our network of referral attorneys who accept cases on a pro bono (free) or reduced-fee basis.

Our current clinics include the following:

  • Ayuda Legal Clinic:
    1st and 3rd Thursdays, 4-6:30pm
    4455 N 6th St Ste 100
