As an organization focused primarily on achieving policy change, the National Women's Law Center represents individuals in only a small number of civil legal cases each year, but we may be able to provide you with information, guidance, or referrals.

The Center's expertise centers primarily on sex discrimination. If your situation does not relate to an issue involving sex discrimination, we may not be able to advise you and will instead direct you to another resource. We generally cannot assist in cases of medical malpractice, divorce and custody, child support, or domestic violence.

If you are having trouble getting birth control or other important women's health needs met without a co-pay or out-of-pocket costs, as required by law, visit CoverHer.org or call our free hotline at 1-866-745-5487.

If you would like to contact us about a civil legal matter, please fill out the form below and give us some details about your situation. A Center representative will be in touch with you.
