Minnesota Lawyers for the Arts is pleased to connect artists in need of legal assistance to a variety of services.
If you have general questions, disputes or needs related to copyright, taxes, intellectual property, trademarks, setting up a business, licensing, writing or signing a contract, copyright and trademark infringement, artist immigration, music royalties, leasing and buying property, estate planning, or other law-related questions related to your work as an artist, complete the form below and one of our staff will follow up with you with some options.
These services may include:
• A free 30-minute phone consultation with a volunteer attorney
• Mediation services with a neutral party to resolve a personal or professional dispute
This form will take 2-3 minutes to fill out. If you need assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text Andy at (651) 294-0907.
We will make every effort to get your referral made in 3-5 business days. Depending on the complexity of the request, attorney availability and the nature of the legal issue, it may take 1-2 weeks to get a referral. If your request is time-sensitive, please let us know. We can't guarantee we'll be able to make a referral for deadlines less than 2 weeks away.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Individual attorneys on our roster are not providing full representation on a pro bono basis at this time. If you are looking for pro bono assistance on a legal matter and need services beyond a half-hour phone consultation, please email at the address above, and we will help you find some pro bono resources. If you need urgent legal assistance, please contact the Minnesota Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service.
