* You must be logged onto the website to access this link to the Case Referral System. After logged onto the website, in the Case Referral System, use the password assigned to your legal assistance office (not your personal password). If you do not have a password for your current office, email the Project Director, Mary Meixner, at mary.meixner@americanbar.org. After submitting the case referral form, you will be taken to a website that confirms the submission. The referral is then automatically routed to a designated supervising military attorney who screens referred cases. Once reviewed and approved, the Project will notify you and will begin searching for a volunteer attorney.
