Today, more people are representing themselves in legal proceedings than anytime in the past. The library’s effort to provide limited legal help is part of a statewide movement to meet the ever-growing unmet legal needs of Washington residents. Low-income Washingtonians average 9.3 legal problems per year and a vast majority of them do not get legal help for those problems.

We are here to help.

The Rita R. Demody Legal Help Center (LHC) at the Public Law Library of King County provides free, limited legal  help to patrons whom we determine might benefit from such help. This often includes:

  • Helping patrons find and complete court forms,
  • Getting information about what court rules to follow, or
  • Learning how to initiate or respond to legal proceedings.

The Legal Help Center staff, however, will not represent patrons in court or other venues, or provide further services.

How to Get Help:

  • The Legal Help Center operates every Monday, Tuesday, and Friday in Seattle.
  • The Legal Help Center operates every Thursday in Kent.
  • Patrons should bring all of their legal documents and arrive between 8:45 am and 9 am. There is no need to arrive earlier.
  • No appointment necessary.
  • Depending on the number of patrons needing help, you may be asked to participate in a lottery to determine who our staff Public Services attorney will meet with.  Please note: the LHC staff will not represent patrons in court or other venues or provide further services.
