Equality Ohio often hears from LGBTQ people who are in a bind; sometimes because Ohio’s laws often leave them out, and sometimes because many systems just aren’t set up to serve LGBTQ people.
The legal clinic offers many free legal services, like consumer law (such as fraud and identity theft), family law, civil rights, administrative help (such as SSI or disability) and more.

The clinic can be accessed by calling 855-LGBT-LAW or filling out an intake form below.
Fill out an intake right here and we will contact you to get more information.
