I got a referral from CLC for estate and trust help. They sent me to an attorney that didn't do that kind of work. I was put in a rent an office conference room by myself for 15 of my free 30 minutes then given 15 minutes of advice that was "not legal advice but just general advice" by a young lawyer 20 years my junior who was offering his wisdom. CLC offers a 25% discount on work through my employer EAP. I suggest you get a referral from someone you know. CLC seems to be a referral service for starving lawyers who are starving for a reason.

CLC Legal Referral Svc Not Trustworthy for Reliable Referral
CLC Legal Referral Service checks out to be sure their attorneys are with the State Bar but that's all. When Lawyers apply to CLC they fill out a questionnaire stating which types of cases they are willing to accept. When I was very specific in asking for a Special Education Attorney. They promised me they referred me to a special ed lawyer and I gave him $2,000.00. But when he came to an IEP meeting he didn't know what he was doing. It turned out that Mr. *** is a Real Estate attorney. Real estate has been slow so he's taking on cases that he is not prepared to take. CLC does not verify ANY of the information the lawyers give them except that they are in good standing with the bar. The attorney can tell them anything and CLC doesn't check it out. Don't use CLC. Their referrals are not reliable. Go straight to the Bar website. I lost $2,000.00 to a greedy, unscrupulous attorney. Don't let this happen to you.

CLC Legal Referral Service Bad Referrals
I called CLC a legal referral service for a referral to a special education attorney. I trusted they referred me to a genuine special education attorney. I retained him for $2,000.00. Aftera couple conversations some red flags went up. He told me not to worry that if we didn;'t get the accomodations my son needed "We'll go to the city". I told him, you don't go to the city you go to the state (referring to the Ca State Dept of Education). He responded "Why would the state care? I was *** in not firing him right away. I needed help with the IEP and allowed him to attend. My son lost every single accomodation he ahd. The attorney failed to recognize at least two Procedural Safeguards had been violated by the school district. I went home and Googled the attorney and his name came up as "General Law". CLC refuses to assist. CLC it turns out has an application for the attorneys. The attorneys check what cases they will take. CLC checks out their standing with the Bar but that's all. This WAS NOT A SPECIAL ED ATTORNEY. I was a fool, but CLC is NOT a RELIABLE source for finding an attorney. Don't bother calling CLC just go to the State Bar web site and find an attorney on your own.
