NAMI Legal Center Lawyer Referral

The NAMI Legal Center provides lawyer referrals as a service to our members and the general public.  We require attorneys on our Lawyer Referral Panel to complete questionnaires regarding their specialties, fees, education and liability insurance.  Communications to the center remain confidential, as does our attorney information.  We do not verify qualifications or credentials of attorneys on our panel, and supplement our listings with the Disability Law Directory of the American Bar Association, the Directory of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, the National Legal Aid and Defender Association Directory and the Directory of Local Pro Bono Programs.

Areas of legal specialization include: civil commitment, civil rights, criminal law, family law, health law, medical malpractice, SSI/SSDI, estates/trusts/special needs trusts, guardianship/conservatorship/advance directives, etc.

You may contact the NAMI Legal Center by email or by calling (800) 950-6264.  Please furnish full name, address with zip code and telephone number to help us find legal aid in your area.

Join Our Lawyer Referral Panel -- Our Legal Center receives daily calls from our members and the public requesting legal assistance. As a result, we created a lawyer referral panel as a service to those in need of legal assistance.
