Alternative Dispute Resolution & Mediation 

In some instances you might be able to proceed through the court process without having to litigate your case.  The Trial Court offers a number of alternatives to litigation. See Alternative Dispute Resolution for more information. 

Law Libraries

There are seventeen Trial Court Law Libraries located across the state and open to the public. While the librarians cannot provide legal advice, they can help you find legal information.  Librarians can help you find and use websites and online databases, help you find forms, and help you find and check out books on your topic. Assistance is available in person, and also through online chat, email, and more. See Ask a Librarian for information on contacting a law librarian.
