by becoming a QUILT attorney panelist.
In Pima County, there is a real need for access to legal services for the middle- to low-income individuals and families who are "too rich" for free legal services and "too poor" to afford normal legal fees. As a result, this group can fall through the cracks of the legal system.
The Pima County Bar Association's Qualified Income Legal Team (QUILT) Program was designed to assist this group within the public population, and is comprised of local attorneys who have agreed to provide legal services to financially-eligible clients at the program's rates.
The QUILT Program covers the following legal areas:
Divorce (with children & without children)
General Civil Litigation
Landlord / Tenant
The QUILT Program IS NOT a free service. Potential clients must complete the client application form and meet the program's financial qualifications to participate. Clients submit a non-refundable $30 administrative fee with their applications. Those who meet the program's guidelines are then given the contact information of a participating attorney in the appropriate legal area. Clients initially receive a 30-minute consultation with the attorney, in which the legal circumstances are discussed and future plans/arrangements (including fees are discussed).
Details about the QUILT Program, how it works, and the requirements of participating attorneys are included on each attorney application.
There are different application forms for attorneys interested in assisting with
CIVIL cases and those who would like to help with CRIMINAL/DUI cases.
Please select the appropriate one.
