Resources Directory

We are sometimes contacted by people who are seeking legal advice or looking to hire an attorney who specializes in LGBTQ issues. We have created this directory to assist these potential clients. The Rainbow Law clinic is a free legal clinic that meets once each month. At the clinic, local attorneys who specialize in LGBTQ issues provide free advice. Additionally, the attorneys listed below represent clients on LGBTQ issues. While we believe this is an excellent list, we have not verified any of the information they provided. We list every attorney who requests to be added. If you would like to be added, please email us at
