Student Legal Services really cares about Ohio State students.

"It was very pleasant. I felt that my attorney actually cared about my issue. Both my attorney, and the staff at the front desk were very professional and nice."

Student Legal Services has your back.

"The SLS legal team completely had my back from the beginning and were honest and forthcoming with expectations. We reached a resolution that was better than I even thought possible. The knowledge of having them in my corner and not being pressured to take an unsatisfactory plea bargain really helped me to be confident. I am incredibly grateful for everything they did for me. I have let everyone in my reach at Ohio State know about SLS and the amazing job they did for me."

Student Legal Services helps relieve your stress, so you can focus on what really counts.

"Student Legal Services was extremely helpful in helping me with my case. As a freshman, I was extremely worried and overwhelmed by the idea of having to deal with court on my own. I would not have known what to do without Student Legal!"

"Because of SLS I was able to focus on school and know that I was in good hands with respect to my citation."

"I had a great experience with Student Legal Services. They helped to reduce the stress of a situation that I felt was out of my hands and provided me with clear answers to all of my questions. I would have had no idea how to approach the situation without their help, and I felt that I was treat ed with more respect with the representation of Student Legal Services than I was prior to seeking their help."

"SLS was extremely helpful with my case in which I would otherwise not know what to do. They helped me get my case dismissed and I can now get it off my records completely in a year, which is a huge relief."

There’s no judgment, just help.

"I was pleasantly surprised with how kind and understanding everyone was. There was no judgment and they offered immediate advice and help. I walked out of there much happier than I had walked in."

A reliable, positive experience.

"Student Legal Services has been an incredible help to me through more than one ordeal during my time at Ohio State. They are extremely knowledgeable and willing to help students in any way they can. I always recommend Student Legal to other students. This is by far one of the best and most reliable student services at Ohio State."

"I was listened to, made to feel my concerns were important, allowed the time and space I needed to actually deal with the situation (i.e., I was never made to feel like the attorney was "in a hurry"), and genuinely would describe this as one of my most positive experiences with any aspect of the Ohio State."
