Contact Us

If you are calling to request legal assistance, please call our intake line at 416 978-6447. You will be asked a number of questions to determine if we are able to assist you. Please note that DLS is not a walk–in clinic. You must call the intake line as the first step of the intake process. If we are not able to assist you, we will try to provide you with meaningful referrals to other agencies that may be of assistance.

For all other inquiries or to reach any of our staff or students, please call the main office line at 416 934-4535 or contact us by email at Our fax number is 416 934-4536.
