San Joaquin County Bar Association: Small Claims Clinic
Small Claims Advisors will help you with the small claims process but cannot give legal advice.
San Joaquin County Bar Association: Mediation
Community mediation and court-connected mediation services for various non-criminal disputes, like business or neighbor disagreements. There is a sliding-fee schedule and no one is turned away for an inability to pay.
San Joaquin County Bar Association: Lawyer Referral Service
This is the Bar Association’s intake line that connects callers to private lawyers. Private attorney referrals are usually most applicable for low-income populations when there is no non-profit help available, or for cases where there might be funds recovered to pay an attorney (personal injury, a lawsuit against someone to recover funds for some kind of damage, SSI/SSDI, insurance cases, etc.).
