Getting Legal Help

If you need legal advice or representation, we suggest that you consult with an attorney. An attorney would directly represent your interests and is the one whose advice would be most helpful to you.

You may obtain a referral to a certified lawyer referral service by contacting the State Bar at (866) 442.2529 (toll-free in California) or (415) 538.2250 (from outside California), or via the State Bar of California website

If you cannot afford an attorney, you may wish to contact your local legal aid office. For a referral, please visit http://lawhelpca.org/ and click on the Find Legal Help tab.

Members of the armed forces and their dependents can also obtain legal assistance from their local JAG legal assistance office, http://legalassistance.law.af.mil/content/locator.php

The Attorney General cannot provide you with legal advice or represent you in personal legal actions.
