Can the Law Library help me find or hire an attorney?

Librarians at the Law Library of Congress are not permitted to recommend specific lawyers or attorneys. Patrons in need of legal advice or an attorney referral will be referred to their local bar association, to their local legal aid services organization, or to a general attorney directory.

The American Bar Association has an online Lawyer Referral Directory External which allows users to find state and local bar associations by entering a city and state.

The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) has an online directory, Find Legal Aid External, which allows users to find an LSC-funded legal aid organization by entering an address or city.

There are also general attorney directories available online, such as those offered by Martindale External and U.S. News External.
