Legal Resources / Self-Help

Our intent by adding this section is to provide you with resources where you can find information about the situations and problems you may be facing so that you can make an informed decision on how to evaluate your situation and move forward towards resolving your problems. Remember, the information here is NOT legal advice. You should always consult an attorney about your legal situation before taking any action that may affect your legal rights or obligations.

Cannot afford a lawyer?

If we cannot help, and you cannot afford a lawyer, you may try contacting the following organizations for potential further assistance:

  • Contact the Legal Aid or Legal Services (LSC) Corporation Office. Generally help with things such as landlord-tenant relations, credit, utilities, family matters (like divorce/adoption), foreclosure, home equity fraud, Social Security, welfare, unemployment, and workers’ compensation.
