Looking for an attorney? This page gives you for a number of options and resources.

If you need help with your case, this section gives you for a number of options to find an attorney. If you don't think you can afford an attorney, you can review the information below about finding free or low-cost legal aid service. Below you will find some resources in the areas of lawyer referrals, legal aid and pro bono services.

Lawyer Referral Services
Legal Aid

You may be eligible for free or low-cost legal help in non-criminal cases from legal aid. Whether you are eligible will depend on your income and the type of case you have, as many legal aid services focus on problems that affect basic needs such as housing, government benefits and family safety. Find legal aid providers by county or area of law at www.LawHelpCA.org.

Pro Bono Services

If you don't qualify for legal aid, you may find an organization or attorney willing to represent you on a "pro bono" (no fee or reduced fee) basis. A local bar association or a private organization that specializes in the kind of problem you face, such as the American Civil Liberties Union or the Housing Rights Center, may have pro bono referrals to help in your case. Use www.LawHelpCA.org or the Consumers' Guide to Legal Help to locate legal aid providers in your county.

Online lawyer directories also provide attorney listings, much like a phone book. Check out Martindale.com, FindLaw.com, Justia.com or Nolo.com, where you can identify attorneys who specialize in your area of law.
