COURT EMPLOYEES CANNOT PROVIDE LEGAL INFORMATION.
THIS IS WHY:
Impartiality: Court employees have an “absolute duty of impartiality.” A court employee can never give advice or information for the purpose of favoring one court user over another.
Neutrality: Court employees must remain neutral and cannot make judgements about what is in a litigant’s best interest – only the litigant and his/her lawyer may do so. A court employee should not advise court users as to which remedies to seek or whether to avail themselves of a particular procedure or alternative.
If you are looking for advice or legal help, it is advisable for you to contact an attorney of your choosing. If you are looking for generalized legal information, you may want to contact one of the following legal resources:
