Scheduling an Appointment

If you’d like to begin the process for scheduling an appointment, email your name and student ID number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at (612) 624-1001. Our intake coordinator will verify that you are eligible for services and ask for a brief description of the type of concern you have.
*I-9 notarizations require an appointment.

When you arrive at our office, you’ll be asked to fill out our New Client Intake Paperwork. (You can also fill this out in advance and email it to email@example.com before your appointment.) Appointment lengths can vary, but you’ll typically meet with either an attorney or a legal staff member for 30 minutes to an hour.
