Dodge & Fillmore County

LAOC provides free family law clinics for Dodge County residents at the Dodge County Courthouse and for Fillmore County residents at the Fillmore County Social Services Building, which are open to all income levels.

The Family Law Clinics are an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a volunteer attorney to ask questions, discuss options, and get legal advice.  The volunteer attorney provides free (pro bono), one-time only, legal advice during the clinic session, and does not become the attorney representing the case.

Clinics are offered once a month and have limited availability. Pre-registration is encouraged. Drop-ins will be seen on a first come, first served basis.

To register for the next clinic or find out more information, please contact Victoria Ness at or call our office at (507) 287-2036.
