Pursuant to California Education Code section 56502(h) and its inter-agency agreement with the California Department of Education, the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) is required to maintain lists of free or reduced cost attorneys and advocates and make those lists available to the public. The attorneys or advocates listed on these lists self certify that they are free or low cost. You should contact the individual attorney or advocate and determine what free or low cost services they provide. OAH does not represent that the individuals placed on the list offer free or low cost services. It is important that if you choose to use these lists that you contact the attorneys and advocates to discuss their fees.
