About Requesting Legal Help from the ACLU of Utah

The ACLU of Utah accepts civil liberties complaints and requests for assistance through our online complaint form and from mailed or emailed intake packets.

Because of our limited resources and the number of complaints and requests for legal information we receive:

  • We often have to make difficult choices when deciding on the types of issues that we can adequately address.
  • We are unable to accept walk-in appointments or answer legal questions over the phone.
  • We will try to prioritize intakes that require an immediate response, but we cannot guarantee emergency assistance.

Know Your Rights
