RCRI can provide assistance to your community's lawyer, potentially reducing your legal bills by eliminating independent research, since much research on many issues has been done and is available to RCRI members.

Smaller communities usually can be accommodated with regard to fee structuring. If you are interested in discussing this possibility, email Sabrina Hidalgo at
