The Washington State Bar Association developed the Moderate Means Program to fill gaps in the justice system and increase access to legal representation for people. It connects people who cannot afford the cost of typical legal representation with attorneys and other legal professionals willing to represent them on a sliding fee.
The Moderate Means program is a partnership between the Washington State Bar Association and the law schools of Gonzaga University, Seattle University, and the University of Washington. The WSBA Board of Governors and private funding through the Washington State Bar Foundation support the program.Intake Process:
To be eligible for the Moderate Means Program, you must be facing a family, housing, consumer law, or unemployment benefits issue. Applying online is the fastest way to determine if you're eligible and to connect with a lawyer. If you can’t apply online or have trouble with the application, call the toll free intake line at 855-741-6930. After you have applied, a law student will call you within three to five business days to get information about your legal issue and make a referral.Languages:
