Legal Referral Network
If you need legal advice, AAUW can provide you with a free legal referral based on your location.
The AAUW Legal Referral Network includes attorneys across the county, some of who offer pro bono or reduced-free initial consultations. Attorneys can help you identify whether you have grounds for a claim, review legal strategies you can use, consider alternatives to a lawsuit, and weigh the pros and cons of legal action.
Please note: AAUW is not a law firm. We do not offer legal services or legal advice of any kind. AAUW does not make any representations, guarantees, or warranties concerning the legal advice provided by attorneys in the Legal Referral Network. We cannot guarantee the expertise or qualifications of any attorney. The decision whether to retain an attorney is solely the responsibility of the client.
