Need help in court?

CARPLS attorneys give free legal advice; our attorneys do not represent clients in the courtroom.

If you need an attorney to go to court with you,  you may qualify for free or reduced-fee services from other legal organizations.

Our attorneys will do their best to refer you to such an organization if one is available for your type of case or situation.
