The Jefferson County Bar Association (JCBA) Lawyer Referral Service can help find the right lawyer to hire.
In Texas, most lawyer referral services will refer you to a lawyer who is a part of their network and will charge you $20 for a 30-minute consultation. You should confirm this information with the lawyer referral service.
If you decide to hire the lawyer after the initial half-hour consultation, you and the lawyer can negotiate the fees. These fees may be on a full or reduced basis, depending on the program the attorney participates in.
Also, please ask the lawyer whether they offer limited-scope representation. Limited scope representation is a way to hire a lawyer to handle specific parts of your case while you handle the rest. You and the lawyer will agree on the specific tasks that the lawyer will handle. The exact type and amount of work that a lawyer does in a limited-scope agreement varies based on what you and the lawyer decide is right for your case. Limited-scope representation can save you money, but not all lawyers offer it.
