How it Works

How can you help with my legal problem?

The OCBA Lawyer Referral and Information Service may be able to refer you to an attorney for most legal issues.

I'm not sure whether I need an attorney. Can you help me?

Sometimes we help you figure out that you don't need a lawyer. In that case, we will refer you to other helpful community resources that might be better or more cost-effective for you.

How do I request a referral?

Request a lawyer online or call 407-422-4537. Se habla Espanol. We are open Monday - Friday, 9:00a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to accept calls or chats through the website. Explain your legal issue with one of our referral counselors or submit information using the online form anytime. We will connect you to a screened OCBA lawyer.

Can I come to your office to receive a referral?

We do not accept walk-ins. Please call 407-422-4537 or request a referral online.

How much will I have to pay?

Initial consultations are free and last for up to 30 minutes. After the initial consultation, the attorney may charge their standard fee for their services. It is important to discuss what these fees may be during the initial consultation. Learn more about attorneys’ fees here.

What happens after I receive the referral?

You will need to contact the lawyer to schedule an initial consultation.

Where do I meet with the attorney?

The OCBA attorneys are located throughout Central Florida. However, most initial consultations are conducted over the phone.

What if I can't afford to pay to hire an attorney?

If you cannot afford an attorney, please visit the Legal Aid Society of Orange County, Inc. website, or call 407-841-8310. The Legal Aid Society explains what kind of cases they are able to handle. The assistance they provide is income-based. Please contact the Legal Aid Society for more information.
