Call: 800-244-9023
Intake Hours: Monday – Thursday, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

SCCLS paralegals work hard to respond quickly to calls received on the Intake line. The average wait time for a call to be answered is less than 3 minutes. Sometimes you may have to wait longer due to a particularly high volume of calls. You can either wait and we will answer your call, or you may call back at a different time. If you are not facing an emergency, you may also submit an online inquiry.

SCCLS will keep confidential information you share by phone with SCCLS Intake staff, whether or not you complete an intake. However, calling the Intake line or communicating by phone with SCCLS Intake staff does not create an attorney-client relationship between SCCLS and you.
