You’re not alone: There are more than 200,000 legal aid lawyers in Virginia, and the demand is so high for them that many have opened their doors to new clients.
But it’s not just a matter of giving a lawyer a call.
Legal aid lawyer John Sutter says a lot of lawyers don’t realize the importance of getting help with their bills and expenses.
He said he has seen clients who were told that if they didn’t pay a bill or pay for legal aid they would be charged a “collection agency” fee.
He also said the legal aid office doesn’t give a lot more information than a lawyer would.
If you’re looking for legal help, it’s best to get in touch with a lawyer, he said.
He and his colleagues at Virginia Legal Aid often work with lawyers who are able to speak in their own language and can explain why their client needs help.
When it comes to medical bills, many legal aid attorneys say they’re not just there to help.
They can help with your taxes, rent, and mortgage payments, and can work to get you a lawyer to work with you.
You may be able to get a referral to a lawyer who can help you pay bills.
Sutter, who runs his own practice in Norfolk, says many legal help attorneys are trained in mediation, where they can negotiate a settlement with a client who is unhappy.
He says he can also help with debt consolidation if a lawyer doesn’t have the resources to do it.
If your income is low and you don’t have a lawyer with you, you can go to a financial aid office and ask for help.
If you have a small business, you may want to look into a job search.
