Modest Means Reduced Fee Referral Program

The NHCBA also sponsors a separate referral program for certain types of family law, landlord/tenant, unemployment compensation and minor criminal cases. There is a $25 referral fee to use this service. If the individual qualifies under our Financial Guidelines (assets no more than 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines), they would be referred to an attorney who has agreed to consult with clients and possibly take the case for a $60 an hour fee, which is lower than the usual hourly rate in this area. That fee includes a $500 retainer, which the client would need to provide up front, and which would pay for the first 8 hours or so of legal assistance.

Call Modest Means at (203) 562-5750 for more information. Program information and forms are available below for downloading (PDF format).

Pro Bono Legal Aid

If you are unable to afford the reduced fee program, we recommend that you speak with Statewide Legal Services of CT or the New Haven Legal Aid Assistance Association to find out if you qualify for pro bono help.
