ASBSU Funds Free Legal Advice for Students

Free Legal Advising: ASBSU Student Legal Services Mondays & Thursdays

Do you need legal advice?  It’s not always easy, or affordable, to come by as a student. That’s why the Associated Students of Boise State University (ASBSU) funds free attorney consultations with a local private lawyer for most legal problems you may have. This service is available to all full fee paying students at Boise State.

Some of the topics eligible for discussion are:

  • Landlord/tenant problems
  • Small claims court
  • Divorce/family Law
  • Automobile accidents
  • Personal injury
  • Child custody/child support
  • Minor in consumption/possession
  • Driving under the influence
  • Workman’s compensation claims
  • Collection and debt problems
  • Insurance claims
  • Probate
  • Adoptions

You’ll meet with one of two attorneys with the law firm of Schroeder & Lezamiz Law Offices, LLP. The firm was established in 1981 in Boise, Idaho and has provided legal services to individuals, businesses, and universities. It has received the AV rating from Martindale Hubbell, which is the highest rating given to law firms in the United States. You can learn more about Schroeder & Lezamiz Law Offices, LLP here.
