Legal and Financial Services
Autism Legal Clinic
Autism Action Partnership is proud to work with Legal Aid of Nebraska in providing a free legal clinic to individuals on the autism spectrum and their families or advocates.
Through the virtual clinic, legal representation will be provided on civil legal matters related to autism including educational issues, access to public benefits and health insurance, as well as support with educational and financial issues that impact individuals and families. In order to qualify, the client must have a child with autism and the legal issue must be related to the care of that child. Legal services can also be provided to adults on the spectrum facing a civil legal issue related to their diagnosis. Once an applicant qualifies for assistance, an assessment of the person or family’s legal issues will be completed and on-demand legal advice will be provided. If extended representation is required, the applicant will be referred to one of Legal Aid of Nebraska’s seven state wide offices.
If you would like to speak with an attorney about your needs please call toll free 844.535.3533.
