One benefit of NASW membership is legal consultation. Hopefully, you will never need it. But if you do, know that you can call upon the NASW Office of General Counsel for assistance. If you have a legal question, call the member services number at 1-800-742-4089 and ask for a legal consultation.
If you have a legal question that relates to malpractice, and you have your liability insurance through NASW ASI, you can ask them for legal assistance as well. Call them at 1-855-385-2160.
