Legal HelpLink.  The Legal Help Link is a collaborative effort by the Delaware State Bar Association, Delaware Volunteer Legal Services, Inc., Widener University Delaware Law School, Community Legal Aid Society, Inc. and Legal Services Corporation of Delaware.  A call center staffed by law students from the Delaware Law School, it coordinates the services of certain agencies that provide legal assistance to individuals who meet certain standards, including but not limited to federal poverty income standards.  If the caller is not eligible, he or she may be referred to the Lawyer Referral Service.  See below.

DISCLAIMER:  Contacting the Legal Help Link and completing an intake does not guarantee representation.  Representation is offered on a case by case basis after evaluation of the merits of the case and the resources available at that time.

Phone Numbers:  302-478-8850 (New Castle County)
888-225-0582 (Kent and Sussex Counties)

Hours of Operation:  9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; closed Friday.  Summer hours vary.


Lawyer Referral Service.  The Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) is strictly a referral service.  Members of the public who call are interviewed and will have to give their name, address, phone and a brief description of the problem.  LRS then selects and notifies an attorney who practices primarily in that particular area of the law.  The lawyer then sets up an appointment with the client.  A $35 fee is payable at the time of the appointment and entitles the client to 30 minutes of consultation.  If the referral results in the attorney accepting the case, the attorney and the client make arrangements regarding payment of attorney’s fees.

LRS does not answer legal questions, and it does not provide lists of pro bono attorneys or legal representation.  

Phone Numbers:  302-478-8850 (New Castle County)
888-225-0582 (Kent and Sussex Counties)

Hours of Operation:  9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; closed Friday.  Summer hours vary.
