Apply for Assistance


*For applications submitted through June 2015: Please note that the LawWorks Project will be holding all new applications that do not involve emergencies. If you submit an application during this time for an emergency issue, you will be contacted by a VIP staff member. Otherwise, you will be contacted by July about your case.

Philadelphia LawWorks is able to provide direct intake for nonprofit organizations and small businesses. The application contains instructions on what information is required with your application. You may download the LawWorks application below. Applications are available for download in Word and and fill-in PDF formats. If you select the PDF format, please note that you will need to complete the entire form and print in one sitting (you cannot save your work and return to it later).
