  • Consumer Protection
  • Criminal Records
  • Driver's License Restoration
  • Expungement
  • Foreclosures
  • Immigration
  • Rental Housing

The Clinic is hosted at the Goodman South Campus, 2429 Perry Street, Madison - but appointments may be available at other campuses. Call (608) 243-4200 with any questions.
