What We Do

Washington Lawyers for the Arts’ serves the communities surrounding the performing, literary, media, visual, and interdisciplinary arts. In most cases, individuals and arts organizations seek WLA services because they are operating on a very limited budget and cannot afford to secure the services of an attorney. WLA works with local attorneys who provide specialized legal expertise on topics that are not available through the neighborhood legal clinics offered by organizations such as the King County Bar Association or Columbia Legal Services.

The three main services WLA offers are:


Each is available at a very low cost throughout the year.
