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.).

When you call, they will assess if you need an attorney or non-legal assistance. If legal counsel is advised, they will set an appointment. A $50 fee covers the assessment and a 30-minute legal consultation, but they may offer a reduced fee in certain cases.
