Affordable Legal Services in Family Law by a Legal Technician

A limited license legal technician, also known as a legal technician or a LLLT, is licensed by the Washington Supreme Court to advise and assist people going through divorce, child custody, and other family law matters in Washington.

Legal technicians provide limited legal services in family law by consulting with and advising clients, completing and filing necessary court documents, and assisting pro se clients at certain types of hearings and settlement conferences. They also help with court scheduling and support clients in navigating the legal system. LLLTs are well trained, experienced, and competent licensed legal professionals who may be able to provide you with the legal help you need. If you cannot afford a lawyer, a legal technician might be an affordable option for your family law matter.
