This website is a project of the Tennessee Supreme Court.
The Tennessee Supreme Court hopes that everyone will get help from a lawyer for their legal questions. The best thing you can do if you have a legal problem is to talk with a lawyer. But the Court realizes that sometimes people cannot get help from a lawyer because they cannot afford one or they decide they want to represent themselves. Because of this, the Court created this website. Most of the information on this website is for people who cannot afford a lawyer and need legal help in civil cases (cases that do not have to do with a crime). You can use this website to find a lawyer to help you with all or part of your case, to find an agency to help you with your legal problems, or find information to help you understand what you need to do to represent yourself.
Here you can find links to other helpful websites, how to contact lawyers or other agencies in your county, forms and instruction books, ways to help yourself with your legal problem, and information on the Tennessee court system.
If you can provide services or information, legal or otherwise, to those who cannot afford an attorney or cannot afford to pay the full cost of an attorney’s services, you can find information here on how you can help.
