If you are looking for general legal information or an answer to a simple legal question, you may be able to get help through the hotline. The State Bar’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) will make an appointment for a lawyer to call you back, free of charge, within a few days to briefly discuss your question.
Most Hotline questions involve:
- small claims court
- simple family law
- basic probate questions
- traffic violation questions
Attorneys will not discuss documents, topics requiring complex evaluation or research or court procedures other than small claims.
You can request a call back from a Hotline attorney by calling LRIS at (800) 362-9082 or (608) 257-4666 (in Dane County). We are open Monday through Friday from 8AM to 5PM.
