Consult with a Private Attorney
When you retain a private attorney, he or she would be able to provide advice most helpful to you and represent your interests directly. Lawyer referral services are available through your county bar association or through the lawyer referral services of the State Bar of California at (415) 561-8398.
If you cannot afford a private attorney, assistance may be available through a local Legal Aid Society.
Additional information is available from the California Courts. As the courts note, it's not always easy and you may have to talk to several people but don't give up!
If you have a complaint about a lawyer, contact the State Bar of California. Learn more about California's attorney discipline system.
