Legal concerns can drain you of precious time, money and energy. They can also cause stress and impact your family, work and life. Take the first step toward resolving your legal issue by getting expert, confidential consultation from Legal Support Services.

What’s behind the door to Legal Support Services?
Legal Support Services is a professional legal consultation service that offers access to qualified lawyers. You’ll receive a clear explanation of how the law applies to your specific situation and a recommendation on the most appropriate course of action. Legal Support Services is available Monday to Friday during normal business hours. If you are arrested or involved in an accident in which you are asked to make a legal statement, you may access Legal Support Services for emergency service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

How can Legal Support Services help?
Consultation services are available on a variety of issues including:

  • Family law
  • Separation and divorce
  • Custody and child support
  • Bankruptcy
  • Wills and estate planning
  • Landlord and tenant issues
  • Summons, warrants and subpoenas

Referral services provide easy access to additional help. If your legal issue requires assistance beyond the scope of Legal Support Services consultation service (e.g., preparation of a will or representation in court), Legal Support Services will help by providing a referral to a qualified lawyer or law firm. You will be responsible for fees incurred if you choose to accept representation from a referred legal service, however you will receive a preferred rate.

Legal Support Services offers information and consultation on most legal issues. Exceptions include: consultation on work-related issues, second opinions on another lawyer’s work, and legal guidance for a third party.
