Oregon Legal Resources and Assistance: Tips for Real People Researchers: Peeling the Onion

By

Do you need help with housing, children, crime, social security, benefits, debt, a small business, and other Real People legal matters?

Sometimes you just need to start with one organization, or one website. From there, you’ll find another layer of legal resources and legal assistance referrals, and from there even more – and so on, and so on.

Where to start?

Try one of these: Oregon Law Help, the Oregon State Bar, your county law library, your public library, your elected officials (state and federal), 211 service, a local social service agency, etc.

And keep good notes on what you find and where you should try next. Persevere!
