ALSC attorneys generally do not provide services for cases involving personal injury, accidents, or wrongful death. Many private attorneys will consider taking these types of cases on a “contingency” fee, with no money paid up front and taking their fee as a percent of the recovery. You can call the Alaska Bar Association Lawyer Referral Services at 1-800-770-9999 (or 272-0352 from within Anchorage) for names and contact information for lawyers in other areas of law.
ALSC is prohibited from handling certain types of representation:
- class actions;
- criminal defense;
- representation of prisoners in any type of case; and
- representation of undocumented non-citizens, with an exception if the case involves domestic violence or trafficking.
