Does TLABC offer legal advice or provide legal referrals?
No. TLABC does not provide legal advice.

The association is staffed by non-lawyers, and are not qualified to provide legal advice. TLABC does not provide legal referrals, but will direct members of the public to contact the Lawyer Referral Service, operated by Access Pro Bono.
