New York City residents have come up with convenient and innovative techniques to help them locate experienced lawyers in their communities to handle criminal and legal issues.
Lawyer Referral and Information Service
The New York State Bar Association is responsible for the launch of an online portal via the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). LRIS aims at assisting citizens to find lawyers by either calling the LRIS phone service 1-800-342-3661 or using the online portal The service is confidential and operational 24/7.
Anyone who accesses the website is required to fill a questionnaire while stating their physical address and nature of legal issues. The State Bar staff will then review the confidential questionnaire and use it to match the clients to a nearby lawyer. Referrals are free but there is a $35 fee that is charged to those who consult with lawyers for over thirty minutes. There are several exceptions to this fee rule, for example, if the matter involves personal injury, unemployment, military law and medical malpractice.
