The legal system is intimidating and legal issues can easily get overwhelming. We’re here to help. Contact us or call 249-7202.

UVLA does not have an attorney on staff and nothing said by a staff member of UVLA is, or should be considered to be, legal advice. No staff member of UVLA has the legal right to give legal advice or assist in decision-making or strategy pertaining to legal matters. UVLA staff is available to assist with procedural matters and give general information about the process, rules, rights, and responsibilities pertaining to many areas of law. When providing brief services and filling out forms, UVLA staff cannot assist individuals with deciding which forms to fill out or what information to enter.

UVLA does not have an attorney on staff. No attorney spoken to through UVLA’s services represents a client unless an Attorney Agreement is signed through the attorney’s office. UVLA staff will never facilitate the signing of an Attorney Agreement. Once an Attorney Agreement is signed, all correspondence will be conducted through the attorney’s office until a closed letter is received by UVLA from the attorney’s office. *UVLA cannot assist clients who are represented by an attorney
