If you are having legal problems, contact us. We will help you find a lawyer or agency that best matches your legal needs and resources. Please be aware that we are a referral service, and we cannot give legal advice. We’ll refer you to a lawyer or other service that may be able to help.

Steps and Costs
1. Our LRIS staff will ask you three things:
In order to receive a referral from our service, we must have your name and mailing address. This information is only shared with the attorney we refer you to. We do not sell, rent or share your information with anybody else.
2. Once we refer you to a lawyer, it is your responsibility to make the first call. When you call the lawyer’s office to make an appointment, let the lawyer know that you have been referred by the State Bar LRIS service.
3. The lawyer we refer you to will provide you with a 30 minute consultation for no more than $20
The LRIS does not have any participating attorneys
who offer free or reduced fee legal assistance. After the initial
consultation, you should be prepared to pay a reasonable fee should you
and the attorney decide to work together. Those fees will be determined
by an agreement between you and the attorney. Make sure you understand
completely what your lawyer will be charging you.
