Washington State will soon have Legal Technicians to provide legal advice in Family Law

In 2012 the Washington Supreme Court adopted the Limited License Legal Technician (LLLT) Rule which authorizes a new legal professional who meets certain educational requirements to advise and assist clients in approved practice areas of law. The LLLT Board will begin licensing in Spring 2015.

These nonlawyers will be licensed by the state to provide legal advice and assistance to clients in certain areas of law without the supervision of a lawyer.

There is no other state with a similar LLLT rule.
