Legal Resources

For Citizens

We are eager to help all Oregonians understand the legal system and get legal help when they need it. Please understand that Oregon law prohibits the Attorney General and employees of the Department of Justice from providing legal advice to private individuals (ORS 180.060). However there are organizations that help direct private citizens to a legal professional who can.

If you are seeking legal counsel the Oregon State Bar Lawyer Referral Service may be able to help match you with an appropriate legal representative. For more information please call toll-free in Oregon at 1-800-452-7636.

OregonLawHelp.org is also a great resource to better understand your rights, and help you locate low-cost legal assistance.

For Client Agencies

One of the Department of Justice's fundamental duties is to provide outstanding legal services to our state government. Every day, our lawyers strive to make government work better for Oregonians. Through its General Counsel Division, the Department of Justice advises state agencies and officials on legal issues pertaining to their responsibilities. Attorneys in this division are assigned as contact attorneys. Who is my agency's contact attorney? (pdf)
