Best of all, calling LegalLine is absolutely free!
The LegalLine (512) 472-8303 is open for calls on the first Tuesday of each month between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Volunteer lawyers will be on hand to assist with general legal questions. The volunteer attorneys are community minded lawyers that have chosen to volunteer their time to provide assistance with general legal questions.The LegalLine program, which began in October 2007 by hosting its first two-hour phone session, is a public service sponsored by the Lawyer Referral Service of Central Texas.
