Family Legal Center

In an effort to help patients and their families facing legal issues, Children’s Hospital has formed a partnership with the Louisiana Civil Justice Center to create the Family Legal Center at Children’s Hospital.

The Family Legal Center will provide legal services through a licensed attorney. Patients and their families may be referred to the center by hospital staff or the Louisiana Civil Justice Center. Family members may also call 504.355.0983 for an appointment, but walk-ins are accepted during scheduled clinics. The Family Legal Center is located at the hospital’s main campus.
