Legal Assistance

LAIC participants practice throughout Southern California and are available to provide a comprehensive range of legal services. However, LAIC itself is not a law firm and does not provide legal services. 

If you need legal assistance, the LA County Bar Association runs a lawyer referral service, Smartlaw, which screens attorneys for qualifications. Attorneys provide a free initial consultation (up to 20 minutes). CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE SMARTLAW WEBSITE. If you are outside Los Angeles, CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE CALIFORNIA STATE BAR'S WEBSITE for a list of lawyer referral services in other counties. 


If you need a lawyer and cannot afford one, you may qualify for free legal services from legal aid. Legal aid agencies are non-profit organizations that provide free legal services to people below a certain income level. To find a legal aid organization in your area, CLICK HERE TO CONNECT WITH LEGAL AID ASSISTANCE. The California Judicial Branch also has an online self-help center with information: CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE JUDICIAL COUNCIL'S SELF-HELP OPTIONS:  please visit

I will not send LAIC or any of its community attorneys any confidential information or documents through the LAIC website. IF I DO NOT HEAR FROM AN ATTORNEY WITHIN 72 HOURS OF SUBMITTING MY QUERY, I WILL ASSUME THAT NO ATTORNEY IN THE LAIC COMMUNITY IS AVAILABLE TO PROVIDE ME LEGAL ASSISTANCE. I understand that LAIC is not a law firm or a lawyer referral service; it is a community for individual, California attorneys. I further understand that each individual attorney operates her or his own, distinct and independent legal practice, and that LAIC itself does not provide legal representation or advice. My query will be forwarded to individual attorneys in the LAIC community who will evaluate whether or not any of the attorneys as individuals are able to provide me with legal representation. A legal relationship between myself and a LAIC community attorney does NOT exist until and unless an individual attorney is specifically retained in an agreement signed by both myself and the attorney to provide legal services. I acknowledge that with submitting any and all queries through this website, no legal representation relationship exists in any way between myself and LAIC and/or any of its sponsors, partners or attorneys in its community. I understand that my submitting this query does not in any way guarantee or ensure that I will receive legal advice from or retain one of the attorneys in LAIC's community. I understand that I should continue to seek legal advice and representation regardless of whether I am contacted by an attorney in the LAIC community to ensure that I do not miss any deadlines or suffer any consequence for not having legal representation. I understand that if I have been injured or harmed I may have cause to file a law suit, and that if I have been served legal papers I may be required to file an answer or other legal paperwork to protect my rights and assert my position. There are strict time limits for filing law suits and legal paper work. If I miss a deadline, I may be permanently barred from bringing a case in court or from asserting my position or rights in court.
