It’s quick and easy to find out if you qualify for lower-cost legal help
LRS Modest Means Program
The NHBA Lawyer Referral Services (LRS) Modest Means Program connects people in need of legal assistance with professionals who may be able to help. Our trained Intake and Referral Specialists* match those who prequalify with a licensed NH attorney who charges reduced fees to income-eligible applicants. If you do not qualify or are looking for services other than those provided by an attorney, we may be able to point you towards other organizations, agencies, and resources.**
Because some types of matters are time sensitive, it’s important to seek out help as soon as you know you have a problem.
* Our Intake and Referral Specialists are not attorneys and do not offer legal advice.
** Even if our Intake and Referral Specialists pre-qualify you, the attorney and/or outside organization to whom you are referred may request documentation of your income and reserves the right to turn down your case for any reason.
How the LRS Modest Means Program Works
When you contact us, the information you provide will be used to determine eligibility. If you pre-qualify, LRS will attempt to match you with a nearby attorney who is experienced in the type of situation you have. You are not obliged to hire the attorney and the attorney is not obliged to take your case.
What do I need to apply?
You will need to provide the following information:
- Gross household income (income from ALL adults, regardless of involvement in your case).
- Balance of checking and/or savings accounts
- Child support and/or alimony payments received or paid
- Value of stocks, bonds, CDs, retirement accounts
