Find a Lawyer

We have compiled the resources below for individuals who need to speak to an attorney but do not know how to locate one. We also suggest you contact a bar association in your area as they can usually connect you with a local attorney. Local bar associations may also have pro bono programs or periodic legal clinics open to the public.

Lawyer referral services personally connect you with an attorney in your area. Some of the referral services listed below are statewide and others serve specific parts of Texas.

Legal directories are similar to a phone book. They provide you with a listing of attorneys in a given city, county, or area. Some also list any specializations an attorney may have.
