Middle Eastern Bar Association
The Middle Eastern Bar Association of Washington (MELAW) is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide professional growth opportunities for law students and attorneys of Middle Eastern descent. This organization also serves as a voice for Middle Eastern lawyers and educates the public on issues faced by individuals of Middle Eastern descent.
LegalMatch is a free online service that allows you to quickly and easily connect with qualified Washington attorneys. A valuable alternative to the referral services offered by bar associations, LegalMatch enables you to review in-depth profiles for multiple attorneys at a time. The attorney matching service provided by LegalMatch is applicable for all areas of the law. LegalMatch currently maintains an extensive database of attorneys located in Washington and across the United States.
The Middle Eastern Bar Association works with other Middle Eastern groups in the community, hosts social events, and offers a legal clinic designed to help people of Middle Eastern descent deal with legal problems they face. The legal clinic is one of the most important services offered by this organization and it employs volunteer attorneys who respond to questions submitted by low-income members of the community.
Membership in MELAW is open to anyone, but you must pay annual dues which are $15 for law students, $25 for community members and $35 for attorney members.
