Where to Find an Attorney for Specific Legal Advice

Arizona has three legal aid organizations which cover different regions of the state.

  1. Community Legal Services (800) 852-9075 covers Maricopa, Mohave, Yavapai, Yuma and LaPaz Counties.
  2. Southern Arizona Legal Aid (800) 640-9465 covers southern Arizona.
  3. DNA People’s Legal Services (800) 789-7287 covers northern Arizona.

All legal service programs in Arizona differ, and their criteria for accepting cases vary. The legal aid organizations above all have the same criteria of income restrictions and legal status requirements, but do have varying priorities.

To find out about more Arizona resources that may be able to assist you, you can contact LegalLEARN, Legal Information & Resources at (866) 637-5341.

Individuals may apply for free and reduced fee legal services by using the "Access To Justice Online Intake System" through AZLawHelp. 

If the legal services program in your area cannot assist you, you may be able to find a lawyer through lawyer referral services in Maricopa County (602) 257-4434 or Pima County (520) 623-4625.

The State Bar also maintains a listing of all Arizona attorneys on their website, and certifies “specialists” in eight legal areas. (Not all attorneys seek such certification, however.) Lists of specialists can also be found at the State Bar of Arizona’s website.

QUESTIONS

  • If I take FMLA can I start an online degree program?
  • I took fmla for the birth of a child, however I did not use all 12 weeks. Does fmla cover any time taken off to care for my child or am I now not covered under fmla because I have returned to work?
  • I work for the school district and only get 35 hours per week. With all the time off without pay the maximum hour I can get is around 1175. Does this mean I will never qualify for fmla?
  • When accessing FMLA for the birth of a child, if you are placed on bed rest before the birth is your employer still required to hold your position for the 12 weeks after the birth?
  • How does Family Medical Leave relate to time off for a work-related injury when the employee is receiving workers compensation?
  • Can you take an intermediate leave in carring for your son?
  • I've heard that you can use FMLA "days' for various reason such as PTSD, Migraines and such. Is this true/valid?
