+ Why Should Your Family Join HSLDA

+ Getting started with your application

How long does it take to approve my application?
The processing of applications generally takes 2-4 weeks—longer during HSLDA’s busy season. You will receive your membership information via email once your membership is processed.

You are welcome to expedite your application with a non-refundable rush fee of $100 if you would like to have your application reviewed and processed within 2 business days.

Processing of your application is done differently where the applicant has a pre-existing legal issue. Please review the next section for detailed explanation of that process.

HSLDA reserves the right not to approve an application for membership.

+ What if I apply for membership with a current legal issue?

We do our best to assist non-members when they call us with legal issues – urgent or otherwise. You are welcome to apply for HSLDA membership, even if you are already experiencing legal problems. While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accept your application, we would like to help you if possible.

If you are applying for HSLDA membership with a current legal issue, please submit a membership application with a clear explanation of your legal issue. Because you need to consult with our lawyers prior to your membership application being processed, we charge an additional non-refundable $100.00 consultation fee. One of our lawyers will contact you to review your situation with you and assess if we are able to assist in resolving it. The lawyer typically spends 1 to 2 hours with you in this pre-membership consultation.

Full annual payment of the $156.00 (discounted) or $192.00 (standard) membership fee is also required. If, after consultation with our lawyer, your application cannot be approved, we will return your membership fee of $156 or $192.00 and confirm that your application has not been approved at present.

HSLDA reserves the right not to approve any membership application, and to revoke membership if any information has been misrepresented.
