Pro Bono (no cost) Assistance

Criminal defendants are generally entitled to legal counsel if they cannot afford a lawyer. In those instances, the court “appoints” an attorney to represent the defendant without any cost to them. That’s a constitutional right.  But what happens to clients in civil cases, or who simply need some legal advice?

While your life or liberty might not be at stake in an everyday legal matter, getting the right advice can still be crucially important. Think of people who are defrauded by people who exploit the poor, individuals being abused by debt collectors, or crippling litigation over medical bills.

For the most part, civil litigants are not entitled to free legal representation. But if you can’t afford a lawyer to represent you in court, before an administrative agency, during negotiations, or in some other matter, don’t give up. Our office does a significant amount of legal work for the needy without any expense to them at all for their legal fees.

The most common pro bono cases we can help with are:

  • Bankruptcy cases
  • Employers who refuse to pay you for your work
  • Abusive debt collectors
  • Endless calls to your cell phone that just won’t stop

If you need legal assistance, but simply cannot afford it, please call us at 714-795-2346 to see if it is something we can help you with.  If we can help, we probably will.
