Attorney Referral Program


The CEA-NEA Attorney Referral Program: Your best value for personal legal help.

For more than 150 years, we have relied on our Association for support and service in many areas.  One very popular program is the CEA-NEA Attorney Referral Program (ARP), providing you and your family with affordable access to legal help for personal matters.

An eligible CEA-NEA member gets two free 30-minute consultations on personal legal issues during each membership year, September 1 through August 31.

If you need help beyond this, our program gives you legal assistance at rates well below participating attorney’s usual fees.  “Eligible members” are Active Members (teachers or education support professionals) and Retired Members and the member’s spouse and dependent children.

CEA and NEA have secured attorneys in Colorado and throughout the U.S. to participate in our ARP at substantially reduced rates.  During the two free consultations, you can get legal assistance in five core areas at a 30% discount off the normal hourly fee at any time in any of the nearly 40 states in the program.

Our Association is committed to having only qualified, competent attorneys in our Attorney Referral Program.  Before attorneys can help our members, they are approved by both NEA and CEA.  They must agree to provide service at convenient times outside education employees’ normal work days; discuss fees before they provide services; and accept payment by installment payment plans.

CEA publishes a list of the participating attorneys (below)  several times each year.  Check the CEA web site, for changes in the list before you contact an attorney.  Then contact the attorney and identify yourself as a NEA-CEA member participating in the NEA-CEA Attorney Referral Program.  For more information, contact Karen Rigli at CEA or Tom List at PEA.  For a list of all participating attorneys in the country, contact Karen Rigli (
