Call HelpLine for Urgent Legal Help

Fact Sheet

How to Qualify
HelpLine is here to help those in need of urgent legal help. To qualify, you must be an Arkansan1 who falls within our income guidelines. You must also call about a civil matter; criminal issues (such as traffic tickets) and fee-generating cases (such as those involving personal injury) are not acceptable reasons to call HelpLine. 


How to Call
  • If you are not sure whether your issue is a civil one, or are unsure if you fall within our income guidelines, please call and let HelpLine guide you.
  • You must call on your own behalf, not someone else's.
  • Please, gather documents and facts relevant to your call before calling, so we can help you as quickly as possible.
