If you have a water quality issue and need legal assistance, please fill out the intake form.
After you contact us for legal help, you are considered a potential client. One of CLA's staff members will contact you to begin the intake process. During the intake process, we will collect details about your issue and work with you to identify what type of legal help you may need. During this process we will also identify if your project falls within CLA’s mission and whether we can provide the appropriate support requested. Once we make a determination, we will notify you as to whether CLA can assist you. If we determine we can assist you, CLA will place your legal issue with a CLA volunteer attorney.
