Are you being evicted?
If you have eviction papers from the court, contact the Eviction Defense Project.
Tenants whose landlord has taken them to eviction court can call the Eviction Defense Project line (888-585-9638) or email the Project (firstname.lastname@example.org) to seek legal help. Tenants should leave a message on the intake line or by emailing with their name, date of birth, and eviction case number. The EDP is a joint project of Legal Aid Services of Oregon, the Oregon Law Center and the Center for Non-Profit Legal Services.
