How the LRS works:

  • By telephone, the Lawyer Referral Service is open Monday through Friday, 9:30 am to 3 pm
  • You will be interviewed over the telephone to determine the nature of your problem. You will then be referred to an experienced lawyer. There is no fee for obtaining the referral
  • They guarantee confidentiality
  • Depending on the type of case, you will be charged on $25 by the attorney for the first half hour of the consultation. The reduced rate for the initial half-hour consultation includes conference and advice, but not the preparation of any documents. If further legal service is required, fee arrangements are made between you and the lawyer
  • You can also find an attorney on your own, based on recommendations from family, friends and co-workers.
