Attorney Referral List

This page was formerly ERD-8240-P (R. 02/2017)

This list is made available to provide information about lawyers who may be willing to represent persons in cases filed before the Equal Rights Division and does not reflect any judgment regarding their skills or abilities to provide legal services. The Equal Rights Division is not recommending any particular attorney on this list. If a lawyer’s name is not on the list, that just means that the lawyer has not asked to be included on the list and does not mean that the lawyer is not willing to help you. Additional attorney names may be obtained by contacting the State Bar Lawyer Referral number at (800) 362-9082, or by referring to your local telephone book.

This is a list of law firms that have informed the Equal Rights Division that they are willing to represent parties in cases filed with the Division. The list is arranged in alphabetical order, according to geographical area. Law firms that represent only Complainants are indicated by a “C” in the right-hand column. Law firms that represent only Respondents are indicated by an “R.” Law firms which represent both Complainants and Respondents are indicated by “C/R.” Names of attorneys within the law firm who practice before the Equal Rights Division are listed in the center column. Please note that, although the law firms are listed by geographical area, many firms will accept clients from other parts of the state.

If you wish to retain an attorney, you should contact the law firm directly for information about consultation fees, fee arrangements, special services and so forth.
