Legal Services
Our legal team is here to help you break down barriers and achieve improved health and wellness. We work with patients, people living with HIV, and members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer communities.
 

We can help with health insurance issues, work disputes, discrimination, disability applications and appeals, public benefits appeals (ADAP, Medicaid, Medicare, SNAP/Food Stamps, TANF), immigration matters, powers of attorney and wills, elder issues, and identity documents for trans and gender expansive clients, among other problems.

Our full offering of services include:

We offer several free legal clinics each month. Please contact us for more information about becoming a client or volunteer.

If you are facing any of the legal issues described above, call our Legal Services program at 202.939.7630 or email us at contact-legal@whitman-walker.org

Our staff will conduct a telephone interview. Then, we will review your case to determine how we can assist you. Walk-in appointments are also available at WeWork, Whitman-Walker at 1525 and Max Robinson Center, Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

If you are interested in volunteering as a college student, law student, or licensed attorney, please fill out our Volunteer Form. We are especially in need of Spanish-speaking volunteers
