General Intake Unit


PLA provides advice and referrals to clients who are involved as a defendant in a lawsuit involving a personal injury, an auto accident, or other type of case. Please contact General Intake in as soon as possible, with plenty of time before upcoming deadlines or court hearings.  If you had homeowner’s or automobile insurance at the time of the incident, please contact your insurance company first.

We are unable to assist individuals filing a lawsuit against another person. If you wish to file a lawsuit against another person, please contact the Lawyer Referral Information Service or read about How to Start a Small Claims Case.
