D. Legal Advice ñ
If you have a question regarding your specific situation or circumstance or otherwise believe that you could benefit from legal discussion or advice, WASHINGTON PROBATE urges you to engage a lawyer in your locale. You can find an attorney through your local Yellow Pages, your state or county bar association, or a resource such as the Internet. Most local (ie, County) Bar Associations sponsor a Lawyer Referral Service, which provides members of the public with one or more names of local lawyers who are experienced in and accept LRS-referred clients having specific legal issues, such as those dealing with probate.
