Many county bar associations in Connecticut run lawyer referral services that is accessible both online and by phone. If you need an attorney for a case in the State of Connecticut, then consider using a Lawyer Referral Service that can help connect you with a qualified attorney.
These non-profit public services are not "pro bono." Instead, you must pay the attorney to represent you although the service can help you find a qualified attorney who can provide the services at a reasonable price or accept the case on a contingency fee basis or reduced fee basis.
When you call the service, a trained staff person will conduct a confidential interview to determine which type of attorney might be best suited to your case. Attorneys serve on panels based on practice areas. Once the panel is selected, the staff person will refer you to an attorney. In most cases, a nominal consultation fee of $35 is required. The fee is usually waived for personal injury and social security disability cases.
After the referral, you can contact the attorney for a free 30-minute consultation to discuss your legal issue or concern. After answering your questions, the attorney can talk with you about the attorney fees needed for additional representation.
