The Hillsboro Regional Office of OLC serves low-income clients and seniors in Washington, Columbia, Clatsop, Tillamook, and Yamhill Counties. Potential clients and community partners can call us about any civil legal problem (we don’t handle traffic or criminal matters). Most of our cases fall into one of three areas: family law, with a focus on domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and child support; housing, with a focus on discrimination, subsidized housing, and advice to tenants; and public benefits issues. We have contracts to provide services to seniors in a wider range of problems in all our counties. If we are unable to assist you with your legal problem, we can almost always refer you to other resources and point you to self-help materials. We have staff members who are bilingual in English and Spanish, and we use interpreters to help us serve people who speak other languages.
The Hillsboro Farmworker Office of OLC serves low-income farmworkers in Oregon. We accept cases based on priorities that are set through a client needs assessment.

Our office is open from 9-5 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from 11-7 on Wednesday and other hours by appointment. All staff in the office speak Spanish and English, and one staff person also speaks Mixteco. We can provide interpreters for other languages.
