St. Andrew Legal Clinic


St. Andrew Legal Clinic (SALC) has been serving Oregon families in crisis for 38 years. Whether it's wives trying to escape years of abuse or grandparents stepping in to take care of children who have been neglected; families and individuals seek SALC's legal expertise because we are the trusted name in low-cost, family law. 

With two offices in the Portland Metro Area (Multnomah and Washington County), SALC serves over 1,500 clients a year and focus on individuals with modest means. Over 50% of our clients make less than $1,400 a month and over 45% of our clients are minorities. SALC is founded on the belief that no one shall be locked out of the legal system based on their ability to earn, race, spiritual beliefs, sex, gender, mental health, national origin, or political affiliation. We fight for Justice and lead with empathy and compassion.

Who We Serve.

What We Do.

St. Andrew Legal Clinic serves low-income families with family law needs. If you are seeking legal advice but do not have the means to hire a private attorney, then you are in the right place. 

SALC attorneys have over 100 years of collective legal work and are on staff because they know how expensive the legal system can be and believe that no one should be locked out of the system. 

Our attorneys have helped clients with:

  • Adoptions
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Divorce
  • Domestic Violence Intervention
  • Guardianship
  • Restraining Orders
  • Spousal Support

No matter your family law need and income level, SALC is here to serve our clients with compassion and professionalism. Learn more about our work or contact us here.
