FEE BASED PROGRAMS:
The Northwest Suburban Bar Association offers an Attorney Referral Service for those individuals looking to hire an attorney to represent them in a legal matter. Whether you are looking for help with setting up a business, planning your estate, pursuing a personal injury claim, or any other legal need, our trained staff will help you find a knowledgeable and qualified attorney that best suits your specific needs.
For referrals outside of the Cook County/Northwest Suburban area, see our "Other Bar Associations" page under the "Community Outreach" tab.
OTHER SOURCES OF ASSISTANCE:
It is a goal of the NWSBA to be a reliable source of support to our community and those in need of legal assistance. As part of our service we are providing links to the many groups and not-for-profit agencies that provide help to those who require legal services but have limited income or extenuating circumstances that prohibit them from obtaining adequate representation. It is important to note that agencies have specific criteria and guidelines that they utilize when assessing individual needs.
