Aclu Legal Intake

When reviewing a case, the legal team looks not only for legal values, but also for other things that would make a case a worthwhile investment for the ACLU-GA`s limited resources. They do not deal with cases that are primarily factual disputes, have little influence on the rights of others, or do not concern a matter of civil rights or civil liberties. Their refusal to accept a case does not necessarily mean that they believe it has no legal significance. If you would like to file a complaint, click here to complete our legal complaint form.

All legal claims have time limits. Deadlines may vary depending on who has violated your rights and which rights have been violated. For some types of violations, you may need to take legal action with a government agency before you can sue, and these organizations have their own time limits. If you do not comply with the applicable limitation period, the law may prevent you from making your claim in court.

If you contact the ACLU to describe your problem, it does not mean that the ACLU represents you and will not prevent the statute of limitations. We don`t take walk-ins. Please send a legal request by writing to us, calling the home line or using the online form. • Eastern Regional Legal Admission (ERLI): 617-603-1700; vlpnet.org/get-help/• Local Legal Advisory Offices – meet at www.masslegalservices.org/FindLegalAid• Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless: 781-595-7570; mahomeless.org/ This legal admission form does not provide legal advice and you should not rely on it as legal advice.

The legal department of the ACLU Foundation of Georgia is not a legal aid organization, such as the Office of the Public Defender or other neighborhood legal services that provide legal services to low-income people, including legal advice regarding certain cases. The main objective of the Foundation`s Litigation Department is to conduct effective cases that defend and promote the fundamental guarantees of civil rights and individual freedoms protected by federal and state constitutions.
