You may also e-mail us at vls@tacomaprobono.org to receive a call back. This clinic is a part of the Washington State Bar Association’s Call to Duty project, sponsored by the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association Volunteer Legal Services Program, RallyPoint/6, the Washington State Bar Association and Washington State Bar Foundation. There will be a free lunch/workshop for clinic attendees from noon-1, followed by the legal clinic from 1-3, where you will have a chance to meet with a volunteer attorney to fill out child support or parenting plan forms. You will be able to take the forms with you and sign up for more assistance as needed to complete your case.
