As part of the Bar's Affordable Attorneys for All initiative, the Modest Means Lawyer Referral program helps Utahns with modest earnings find a lawyer offering discounted rates to match their incomes.

If you qualify, you will be referred to lawyer who charges up to $50 or $75 an hour, or a corresponding flat fee. Hourly or flat-fee services often require advance payment (a retainer). The application is in two parts: 1st to see if you qualify and 2nd for questions about you and your situation (there is a $25 non-refundable administrative fee. Payment for this online purchase must be made using VISA or MASTERCARD.).

Check the box or boxes related to your legal needs. We are unable to help in other areas, including but not limited to: personal injury, disability, contracts outside of consumer law, constitution, attorney malpractice, federal claims, immigration, or intellectual property. If you are unsure what area of law your case falls under please call 801.297.7049.
