Legal aid coverage allows you to speak to an attorney before any action is taken by your department. You should ALWAYS know what to do BEFORE formal action is taken against you. Your piece of mind is PRICELESS!
If you are involved in a shooting, vehicle accident, use of force or other critical incident, our experienced SLCPA attorneys are available to communicate with you about your incident immediately, discuss the incident, and assist you in your interview and statement.
SLCPA members are encouraged to contact us regarding any legal matter, not just issues that fall under SLCPA funded legal aid. If appropriate, the SLCPA willl refer members to reputable attorneys specializing in the area of law the member requires. Examples may include: Post Certification Hearings, Workers’ Compensation, Personal Injury, Divorce, Child Custody, etc.
SLCPA also offers free simple will services. Last Will & Testaments and Durable Powers of Attorney (for Health Care Directive) are provided at no cost to members. Just these services alone can cost you thousands of dollars!!
