If you are looking for help with your legal issues and still aren't sure where to go after checking out these resources, you can call the Law Library of Louisiana at 504-310-2400 or toll-free in Louisiana at 800-820-3038 for more assistance. If you want to hire a lawyer, the Louisiana State Bar Association can provide you with referrals, including those that will provide reduced-cost services, through their "Modest Means Directory." If you can't afford a lawyer, you may qualify for free civil legal aid - contact Southeast Louisiana Legal Services or Acadiana Legal Services.
Some people who do not qualify for free civil legal aid may still qualify for free "virtual" legal advice and assistance online at LA.FreeLegalAnswers.org. It is a new service run by the Louisiana State Bar Association, where Louisiana attorneys answer legal questions online. Only civil legal questions, no criminal, and you must income-qualify.
The Legal Education and Assistance Program (LEAP), a partnership between the Louisiana State Bar Association, the Law Library of Louisiana, the Louisiana Library Association, and the LSU Law Library, also provides referral and form information, by parish. Check their website for more information.
