You will have the opportunity to speak with an attorney about your case, but we cannot provide ongoing legal representation. Referral to low/no cost legal representation may be available.

What to bring:

– It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED you bring a copy of your Bureau of Criminal Apprehension records so the attorney has your full criminal history. Call 651-793-7000 for details on how to get them.
– Any other documents relating to your case.
