UPDATE: Callbacks within about 10 to 14 days

We currently have a lot of requests for legal help. If you contact us today, most people should expect a call from us within about 10 to 14 days. We’re returning calls as fast as we can.

  • Please look at the information on our website at to see if your questions are answered here.
  • If you have an urgent problem, please give us as much detail as possible, including important dates and deadlines.
  • Please do not leave a second message.
  • Look for a call back from a phone number that you may not recognize! Your caller ID might say Legal Services, VT Legal Aid, 802-503-0028 or 1-800-889-2047.

Visit our How We Can Help page to learn about what to expect from us, how we can help with civil (not criminal) legal problems, how we help victims of crime, our in-person clinics and workshops, other Vermont legal help options, and legal help in another state.

Problems we cannot help with: We can’t help you with traffic violations. We can’t help you with most personal injury cases, workers compensation, and real estate law. We can’t help you if you are a landlord with a tenant problem. We also can’t defend you in a criminal case or if you are a defendant in a Relief from Abuse case. (However, we can help if you need legal help due to being a victim of crime or abuse.)

What is your name?
When we say “you” or “your,” we are asking about the person who has the legal problem.
