Probate Lawyers Assistance Program (PLAP)

If you are representing yourself in the Probate Court and need assistance with your case, you may be eligible to receive a FREE consultation with a volunteer attorney.

  • Eligible, low-income persons may receive up to a 30-minute consultation for free. (There is a $40.00 cash fee for those who do not meet the eligibility requirements.)
  • Consultations are held on Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and are by appointment only.
  • All consultations are held by phone.
  • An intake form must be completed and signed prior to the consultation.
  • Attorneys will provide advice and instructions, and will review forms filled out in advance, but are unable to provide complete document preparation services due to time limitations.

Contact (602) 732-2834 to schedule an appointment.
