The State Bar of California’s website provides links to lawyer referral services throughout California. Their Free Legal Help page has a list of legal aid groups that provide free services, a link to research low-cost legal aid, and tips on finding immigration legal providers. The website also has a directory of certified lawyer referral services, which is organized by region and county and available in an alphabetical list. In addition, the website offers a searchable directory of lawyers by law type. Contact any of the groups or lawyers directly for details about their fees and services.
If you are a victim of abuse, you may want to ask the Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service whether or not they screen for lawyers who are experienced in handling domestic violence cases.
