Who we are
LARC is a private, nonprofit law firm that provides free legal services to eligible, low-income people in New Hampshire. Our attorneys and paralegals provide legal advice by telephone in the areas of civil law listed below. Our clients' information is kept confidential.
Who we help
New Hampshire residents whose incomes qualify them as eligible for LARC services. We receive support from the federal government and provide services to clients with incomes and assets below levels which are set by Congress and tied to federal poverty guidelines. We cannot provide services to people who are incarcerated.
We provide help to clients with issues in the following areas of civil law:
Domestic violence, divorce, separation, annulment, adoption, guardianship, child support, parental rights and responsibilities - parenting time, primary residential responsibility (used to be called child custody, interstate custody);
- Benefits and welfare
Town and city welfare, unemployment compensation, public housing, Social Security, Medicaid, Food Stamps, disability benefits, SSI and Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF);
- If you have a problem in another area of law, we will refer you to someone who can assist you.
What we do
After we interview you to find out about your legal problem, we give you legal advice over the telephone, and provide you with ongoing support to represent yourself. In some cases we advocate on behalf of clients with the adverse party (for example, with the landlord or the local welfare officer). We refer many clients to other programs, as described below.
We refer many cases to the Pro Bono Program of the New Hampshire Bar Association, New Hampshire Legal Assistance, the Law Clinics at University of New Hampshire School of Law, Disabilities Rights Center, State agencies and independent organizations. If you are not financially eligible for these services, we will refer you to the Lawyer Referral Service of the New Hamphsire Bar Association at 603-229-0002.
Legal Information and Self-Help Materials
We provide self-help guides and materials in many areas of the law, including areas in which we do not provide legal advice. Call 800-639-5290 for more information.
We receive hundreds of calls each day. If lines are busy, please keep trying. Your call is important to us. Because we spend as much time with each caller as is necessary, we cannot be available for every caller each day. You may be placed on hold for lengthy periods. We encourage you to use our online application as an alternative to calling in.
At LARC we work to ensure that low income people in New Hampshire have access to, and are provided with, quality legal services.
The Legal Advice and Referral Center does not discriminate against people because of their age, sex, race, creed, color, marital status, familial status, physical or mental disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or political affiliation or belief. There will be no such aforementioned discrimination in accepting or providing services, or the admission or access to, or employment at LARC.
