Legal Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

Should you require legal assistance, you should review the list of attorneys (PDF 199KB) who have expressed an interest in representing Americans.  We cannot, however, recommend an individual attorney nor can we provide legal advice.

Information on obtaining evidence and service of process in Malaysia is available here.  General information on judicial assistance matters is available here. We encourage lawyers and others needing assistance in these matters to contact us at KLACS@state.gov.  These services can take significant time, and you should plan accordingly.
