Legal Clinic

The Justice System Strategic Plan, which was approved by the Kalispel Business Committee in 2014, identified several needs from the community and one of them was the need to expand the availability and accessibility of legal aid services for the benefit of Tribal and Community Members. In order to meet this objective, the Kalispel Tribal Court, the Kalispel Legal Department, and University Legal Assistance have partnered to offer free legal advice and services to Tribal and Community Members that are in need of assistance. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with an attorney or supervised law student to discuss issues pertaining to non-criminal legal matters including (but not limited to): wills/probate, family law and child support, housing issues, employment, and driver’s license restoration.

The Kalispel Legal Advice Clinic will operate on the second Friday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Administrative Conference Room located on the second floor of the Camas Center for Community Wellness. Although walk-ins are welcome, participants are encouraged to make an appointment in advance. To make an appointment, or to request additional information, please call (509) 447-7235 or email legaladvice@kalispeltribe.com
