Call HelpLine for Urgent Legal Help

Fact Sheet HTML


How to Qualify

HelpLine is here to help those in need of urgent legal help. To qualify, you must be an Arkansan [i] who falls within our income guidelines. You must also call about a civil matter; criminal issues (such as traffic tickets) and fee-generating cases (such as those involving personal injury) are not acceptable reasons to call HelpLine.
