The resources in these pages are provided for convenience and information. These pages are not designed to provide legal advice of any kind. As with any legal issue, it is advisable to obtain legal advice from a licensed attorney when questions of law, rights, duties and liabilities arise.
Also, the South Bay Bar Association offers a lawyer referral service for local attorneys. The participants agree to a charge a small amount for initial consultation ($50 the last time we checked). The referral site location is: https://southbaybar.org/lawyer-referral/.
