Request an Intake Interview

If you would like Downtown Legal Services to provide you with legal assistance, you can call our intake line at (416) 978-6447 during our hours of operation, or you can complete the form below. We will respond to you within 72 hours to discuss whether we might be able to help you.

In order to figure out whether we can help, we need to ask some personal questions. All of this information will be kept confidential.

  • This is not an emergency service. We will respond as soon as possible (and within 72 hours, not including weekends), but if your situation is urgent, we suggest that you contact us, or another resource, by telephone.
  • Completing this form does not make you a client of the clinic. We will need to review your case and conduct an intake interview to figure out whether we may be able to help.
  • If you are already on our waiting list for services, you should not complete this form.
