Oregon Law Center Eviction Defense Project

Oregon Law Center (OLC) is a non-profit providing free legal help to people struggling to make ends meet on matters related to their homes, livelihoods, medical care, and physical safety against domestic violence. OLC helps people with incomes up to 125% of the federal poverty level. In some situations, OLC can help people slightly above this level. 

The Eviction Defense Project provides information, legal advice, and full representation to low-income renters facing eviction. Renters must have an active eviction court case. If a renter in Multnomah County has a notice of termination of tenancy but not an eviction court case, the Project will refer them to partners who may be able to help.
