Are you having trouble finding a lawyer to handle your criminal matters, write a will or any other legal issues? New Yorkers have come up with an innovative and convenient method to locate a lawyer in the community with experience to handle these matters. The New York State Bar Association has launched an online portal via the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) to help citizens find lawyers by using the online portal or the LRIS phone service (1-800-342-3661). The service is confidential and operational on a twenty-four-hour basis.
Anyone accessing the website will have to fill a questionnaire and states their legal issue and physical address. The staff at State Bar will then review confidential questionnaire and matches the client to a nearby lawyer . While referrals are free, there is a thirty-five dollar fee to anyone who consults with the suggested lawyer for more than 30 minutes.
However, there are several exceptions to the rule. If the situation involves unemployment, personal injury, medical malpractice or military law. After this consultation, the individual can retain the lawyer, but there will be an additional attorney fee.
