If your situation requires immediate attention, please do not rely on our programs. You are responsible for responding to a court request. We are not be responsible for missed deadlines.
Lawyer Referral Service
The EPCBA LRIS program refers the public to screened and qualified attorneys. If matched, you will receive a 30-minute consultation with an attorney where the attorney may charge up to $100. Any advice given thereafter will be billed to you at that attorney's regular rate (typically $200 to $300/hour). Please be aware that many attorneys charge a retainer fee if you decide to hire them.
Our program is voluntary for attorneys to join, so we may not have an attorney for every area of law. We cannot guarantee a match with an attorney through our program and a match can take several days.
