Other Lawyers in Virginia, Minnesota

Legal Aid:

Attorneys Bill Maxwell and new hire (pending) are on staff at Legal Aid, phone 218-749-3270. They work free for people below poverty level on specific types of legal issues, some divorces, some domestic violence issues, etc. Start by calling them if you think you might qualify.

This is a website created by the Minnesota Legal Services Coalition with fact sheets, booklets and manuals on civil legal problems (not criminal).

FREE Iron Range Self-Help Attorney:

Valerie Field works Tuesdays and Thursdays 8-4:30 at the St. Louis County Virginia Law Library, located in the Virginia Courthouse (300 5th Avenue South, Virginia Minnesota), and Wednesday and Friday 8-4:30 at the St. Louis County Hibbing Law Library, located in the Hibbing Courthouse (1810 12th Avenue East, Hibbing Minnesota). Feel free to call her during business hours at 218-750-2995. No website or email, this is first come, first served, help for people pro-se (without hiring a lawyer). She does not represent people (will not go to hearings, does not give legal advice, does not make calls to settle your matter.) HELPS WITH FILLING OUT CIVIL LEGAL PAPERWORK FOR FREE. Does not deal with criminal matters.

See for lawyers in the area, as this list might be short. There are lawyers in Hibbing, Cook and in Ely who come to Virginia for Court, and quite a few from Duluth. All Virginia lawyers go to the Hibbing Courthouse too.
