Have a question that this website does not answer? Call the Lawyer Information Service!
On Tuesday nights the WV State Bar operates the Lawyer Information Service, also known as the “Tuesday night hotline.” Volunteer lawyers take calls from the public, and offer suggestions and guidance about their questions.
Every Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., lawyers volunteer their time to answer questions that are presented by men and women throughout West Virginia on a toll free telephone line.
The lawyers listen to the citizens’ comments and questions. They help the callers assess:
- Whether the caller really does have a legal problem.
- Whether there are some simple steps the caller can take to try to solve their problem without a lawyer.
- Whether the caller really does need to have a lawyer to help them.
The volunteer lawyers can provide general legal information. But they cannot provide direct legal advice or legal assistance about your case. To give legal advice, a lawyer would need more information and details than a short telephone call can provide.
To reach the Tuesday night hotline, call 1-800-642-3617.
