A phone or in-person intake will be completed to open your case with IELLA. All information received is confidential.
Reviewing the Facts
With the information and documents you provide to us, we will notate the facts of the case and prepare it for attorney review.
Attorney Counsel and Advice
You will then meet with a volunteer attorney in person or via phone to discuss your case further. They will then advise our staff how to prepare your documents.
Document Prep and Filing
Once your documents have been completed, you will be asked to pick them up in order to file with the court and serve the opposing party.
After your documents have been filed with the court and approved, they will send you information regarding the next steps in your legal matter.
After obtaining a judgement from the court, IELLA will help finalize your case and request an outcome update. We respectfully ask that you allow us to use your positive feedback in promotional material.

Unfortunately IELLA does not currently have the budget to provide full-scope legal services. We provide limited services (counsel and advice) as well as document preparation. If you are adamant to have an attorney represent you in court, we strongly encourage you to call the Lawyer Referral Service in your respective county.
