OUR SERVICE AREA

Our LRS program serves the entire Rio Grande Valley (Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, and Willacy Counties).

To help you find a lawyer, tell us the county where you need an attorney.

If our service does not cover the county you need, we will refer you to an LRS program that can assist you.

STEPS AND COSTS

1. Our LRS staff will ask you three things:
  • The county where you need the attorney
  • Basic information about your legal problem
  • Your name, mailing address, and telephone number
In order to receive a referral from our service, we must have your name and mailing address. This information is only shared with the attorney we refer you to. We do not sell, rent or share your information with anybody else.

2. Once we refer you to a lawyer, it is your responsibility to make the first call. When you make the call, let the lawyer know that you have been referred by the Hidalgo County LRIS.

3. Your lawyer may charge you an initial consultation fee for the first ½ hour of his or her time. This ½ hour fee will be no more than $20.
After that, additional charges should be determined by an agreement between you and your attorney.

Do not hesitate to discuss details about money! Make sure you understand completely what your lawyer will be charging you.
