Drop-In Clinic

The Drop-In Clinic is a program of the Eviction Defense Collaborative. The EDC provides legal assistance to people who are in legal proceedings for eviction in San Francisco. This legal assistance includes guidance in the legal process of evictions, help in preparing papers for people to file in court, possible referrals to other legal resources, hands-on guidance during the settlement conference, help in negotiating an agreement if case does not settle at Settlement Conference, coaching to prepare for a trial, and in some cases representation at Monday trial call. The EDC charges a sliding scale fee for its services and payment plans are possible.We also provide a self help packet for people who need to respond to a Summons and are unable to use the EDC's services because of time or other constraints. The EDC can provide help for people living outside of San Francisco, but many of the services are limited.
