YOU ARE: not low income

There are Lawyer Referral Services throughout the state and there may be one in your area. Lawyer Referral Services are for the general public – there are no financial eligibility requirements. The lawyers charge their regular fees for services after the initial consultation. These are not low-cost or reduced fee attorney panels.

If you live in Spokane County, you may be eligible for low cost legal services depending on your income and type of legal problem. Please call CLEAR Intake (toll free) 1-888-201-1014 for legal assistance.
