Legal Help booklets


Our easy-to-read legal help booklets tell you about:   
  • your legal rights and
  • legal problems you can solve yourself.


Some of these brochures are about cases we take. Some are about cases we don't take. We only take cases where you yourself can't go to jail. If you have a criminal case, call the Public Defender's office.

We take as many cases as we can. We are sorry we don’t have enough lawyers for everyone. What if we can’t take your case? We still may be able to give you one-time legal advice. Or tell you where else you can get help. We also have booklets on this website. They may help you with your legal problem. Click on a button to see the list of brochures for each kind of problem. You can read it now or print it.
