The court staff for the District of Utah cannot provide legal advice. If you need legal advice and can afford an attorney, please consider scheduling a consult with an attorney who practices in the area of law in which you need assistance. Visit to find an attorney.

If you are unable to afford an attorney, some free or low cost resources are:

  • The "Tuesday Night Bar" is a weekly, which is sponsored by the Utah State Bar, is a free legal clinic held at the Utah State Bar Law & Justice Center, located at 645 South 200 East, Salt Lake City.
