How to Access Our Services

SALSA is at Justice of the Peace, Precinct 1 (JP1), every Thursday to assist qualifying applicants with eviction related matters, including eviction appeals and negotiating with your landlord. Appealing an eviction judgment, and following the appeal process/deadlines, can buy you more time to stay on the property while you find a new residence.

JP1 is located at 3505 Pleasanton Rd., San Antonio, Texas 78221. You can find SALSA inside the JP1 building on the right, as you enter, just past security.

Thursdays: 8AM–5PM

No appointment is needed to speak with a SALSA attorney at JP1; however, please note that SALSA must prioritize speaking with applicants that have already received an eviction judgment, are filing an eviction appeal, or have an eviction hearing that day.

Please bring the following documents:

  • notice(s) to vacate, this is the 3-day notice that you receive from the landlord;
  • eviction citation, this is the document you receive from the constable;
  • your current lease; and
  • any other documents you think SALSA should review like rent ledgers, deeds, emails/texts, etc. (Note: we cannot always review every document or take custody of originals)

If you live in Bexar County’s Precinct 1, have been served with an eviction citation, and would like to speak with a SALSA attorney before your hearing, please come to our walk-in housing legal clinic at Haven for Hope on Wednesdays from 2–4PM. If you would like to speak with a SALSA attorney on the same day as your hearing, we will do our best to assist qualifying applicants seeking legal advice. For same day advice, please come to the JP1 Eviction Appeal Help Desk on Thursday (8AM–5PM) at least 1 hour before your scheduled hearing.

If you do not live in Precinct 1 and would like legal assistance before your hearing, you can call St. Mary’s University School of Law, Center for Legal and Social Justice (CLSJ) Housing Hotline at (210) 570-6135.
