Limited Assistance Representation (LAR)
Lawyer for the Day Programs
Some courts have volunteer lawyers who help you with your case for that day only. Every program is different and has its own rules. A program might:
- Give you basic legal advice and help with strategy
- Help you identify and fill out court forms
- Answer legal questions you may have about your case (i.e. evidence you will need)
- Represent you in mediation or in front of the judge (not in Probate and Family Court).
Check with your court to make sure the Lawyer for the Day program will be open on the day that you will be in court. More on Lawyer for the Day Programs
