If you are a victim of abuse, you may want to ask the Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service whether or not they screen for lawyers who are experienced in handling domestic violence cases. For a suggested list of questions to ask regarding the lawyer’s fees and experience when interviewing an attorney, go to our Choosing and Working with a Lawyer page.
Tennessee Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service
Here are the numbers for the lawyer referral services by region:
East Tennessee: (865) 522-7501
Middle Tennessee: (615) 242-6546
Southeast Tennessee: (423) 756-3222
Contact with this service puts you in touch with a pre-screened lawyer with whom you may schedule a 1/2 hour appointment for a small fee (instead of the lawyer's normal hourly fee).
