Information For Parents

Is your son or daughter having problems with their landlord? At Student Legal Services we understand that college students are often inexperienced or first-time renters putting them particularly at risk for being taking advantage of by their landlord. Don't worry, we're here to help. From signing a lease to moving out, please use the resources provided by this site to make sure that your student takes the proper steps throughout the leasing process to ensure that their rights are always respected.

However, sometimes no matter how thoroughly you prepare, issues can arise. While the hourly billings of a private attorney do some serious damage to your checkbook, University of Iowa Student Legal Services offers affordable legal advice and representation strictly for students. Not only do we specialize in handling student issues, but consultations are free of charge. If you feel your student should obtain professional legal help, have your son our daughter give us a call at (319) 335-3276 to set up an appointment today. Our office hours are 8AM-5PM Monday-Friday.

Additionally SLS offers advice regarding a variety of legal issues including but not limited to:

  • Tenant's Rights
  • Criminal Defense
  • Public Intoxication
  • OWI
  • Possession of Controlled Substance
  • Small Claims
  • Name Changes
  • Debt Collection Disputes
  • Divorce
  • Power of Attorney

Know the law, know your rights. Book an appointment with us today. We're here to help.
