Unfortunately, we cannot assist everyone who asks us for legal advice. This may be due to the nature of the legal issue, the urgency of the matter, or because there is a possible or potential conflict of interest between yourself and a staff member, previous staff member, volunteer, another community member, or a program of the service. For privacy reasons, we cannot tell you the specific reason why we are unable to assist you.
