KCBA Self Help Plus Program

The mission of the Self Help Plus Program is to provide guidance though a sometimes overwhelming legal system. For those who need legal assistance, but cannot afford expensive retainer fees or the hourly fees attorneys often charge, this program provides a much-needed service.

Self Help Plus (SHP) helps low-income people that represent themselves in uncontested family law actions.

KCBA Volunteer Legal Services – Records Project

The Records Project provides direct representation to clients with vacate eligible convictions in King County through volunteer attorneys. A vacated conviction is removed from publicly accessible background search services and gives clients the right to tell potential employers or landlord that they were not convicted of the vacated charge. The Records Project maintains a panel of attorneys who work with low-income people, including specific populations such as people with HIV/AIDS, homeless people, immigrants (regardless of immigration status), and people with limited English.
