The Lawyer Referral and Information Service run by the New York State Bar Association can now be accessed online. Residents in need of legal help now have another way to find the appropriate lawyer for their case. With the convenience of the internet, one more obstacle is removed for those in stressful situations and in need of legal help. It is available twenty-four hours a day, and the telephone service is still available as well. Individuals needing legal help can now be assured that they can find a competent, vetted attorney very quickly.
The process involves the individual who is seeking legal help going online to fill out a brief questionnaire which is confidential. They describe their situation, which is then reviewed by staff who select an attorney dealing with the client’s type of case. They are matched by location, which further saves time. The service is free of charge and the initial consultation is a very reasonable $35 for the first half hour. The lawyer can then be retained and fees can be set according to the client’s wishes.
The referral service has been operating for over 35 years and handles thousands of calls per year. It is a win-win for clients needing legal help and attorneys looking for cases and serving their community. The internet endeavor is a partnership with Legal.io, a nationwide group which provides marketplace referral technology for the legal industry.
