Where to Find Help

Lawyer Referral Services


Print this page

Ask the lawyer referral service whether they screen for lawyers who are experienced in handling domestic violence or sexual assault cases -- not all lawyer referral services do this. You may want to check out the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence's list of Questions to Ask Before You Hire an Attorney. You may also want to check with your local domestic violence program, rape crisis center or legal aid association to see if they can refer you to someone who is experienced in representing victims of domestic violence or sexual assault.

The Bar Association provides useful information on choosing a lawyer and on common legal issues, which you can find here: https://www.msbar.org/how_to_choose_a_lawyer.php It does NOT have its own lawyer referral service - instead, they suggest you find a lawyer at one of the following websites: www.mslawyer.com, www.findlaw.com, or www.lawyers.com.
