Having a legal issue come up in your life can be a stressful and unpleasant experience.  Sometimes, the worst part is simply not knowing where to turn.  If you live in New Hampshire, though, there are several resources available to help you resolve your legal issue.

The New Hampshire Bar Association maintains the “Lawline,” a legal hotline.  One day each month you can call and speak to an attorney, who can answer your basic legal questions.  This service is free of charge.

If you do need a lawyer, the New Hampshire Bar also offers a limited attorney referral service.  This service can be reached either by telephone or by submitting a simple online form.  After providing some basic information about yourself and your case, you will receive a lawyer referral.  The New Hampshire Bar charges $25 for this service, although the initial consultation with your lawyer is free of charge.

Finally, many people in search of a lawyer in New Hampshire also use private attorney referral services.  These services are national or regional in scope, so are able to offer a more comprehensive service.  These private services operate online, usually give multiple lawyer referrals, and include information about those lawyers to help you make your choice.  Private attorney referral services are generally free of charge, and the cost for the initial consultation with your lawyer is $0 – $50.
