The referral program offers an up to 30-minute consultation/case assessment with a private attorney for a cost of only $30. An intake person will ask for information needed to determine the area of law and county needed for the referral. A staff member will then contact attorneys and find one to consult with you for up to 30-minutes. During the consultation, you may receive legal advice, have documents reviewed and have questions answered by an attorney. Any representation or time beyond the up to 30-minute consultation/case assessment must be negotiated with the attorney. Please call the Referral Program at (505) 797-6066 so information can be obtained and arrangements for the referral fee can be coordinated. Payment must be received before referrals are processed.
