State Bar of California Lawyer Referral Services

www.calbar.ca.gov/Public/LawyerReferralServicesLRS.aspx The California State Bar maintains a very useful site with links to every county’s
lawyer referral services, plus links to many other related agencies that may assist you. Be sure to check this valuable resource.
Most county bar association referral services will match you to an attorney who provides the kind of legal help you are looking for. Initial
consultations are provided at a greatly reduced rate, typically $30.

Small Claims Courts

www.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp/smallclaims/ The California State Court’s site links to every California county’s small claims division and offers information about filing a small claims action.
The advantages of small claims court are that costs are very low, you can represent yourself and neither side is permitted to be
represented by an attorney. Small claims cases are limited to a recovery of $7,500 in most cases (lower limits apply in some situations).
Even when a case is worth more than $10,000 (or $7,500 on bodily injury claims from automobile accidents where there is liability
insurance), some people still use small claims court and give up recovering any amount over this because of the lower costs, speed and
simplicity of the process compared to other forms of litigation. Most counties’ small claims courts have a court officer who will help you get
your claim filed.
