We refer you to an attorney or agency that best matches your legal problem.

How much does it cost for me to use this service?

There is no charge for referring you to a lawyer or other agency that can help with your legal problems.

Your lawyer will provide you with the first 30-minute consultation for no more than $20. After that, it is up to you to negotiate the fees normally charged by the attorney.

Each lawyer sets their own fees, you should discuss that with them in your consultation.

What is the statute of limitations for my case?

The lawyer we refer you to is the person to ask this question. Please consult with an attorney for your specific issue.

Why do you need my name and mailing address?

In order to receive a referral from our service, we must record your name and mailing address. This information is only shared with the attorney we refer you to; it is never sold to a third party.

Why can’t you refer me to an attorney in my county?

There are two reasons for this:

1) An attorney has not signed up with us to serve that county (all lawyers in our network sign up voluntarily), or

2) We do not serve that county. But we can point you to another lawyer referral service who can help.
