The New York State Bar Association recently released a new way for people to find a lawyer when they need one. In addition to calling the state bar for a referral which has been the only way to get one for several years, people are now able to go to the association’s website. The website now features a Lawyer Referral and Information Service portal which will connect people with a lawyer in their area that has experience in the legal issue they need help on.
In order to receive a referral, the individual inputs the details of what their issue is as well as their personal contact information. A staffer at the State Bar reviews the information, which is handled confidentially, and then provides them with the contact details for the attorney. The fee for the first 30-minute consultation with this referred attorney is $35 although there are some exceptions to this. The service will help both people find nearby attorneys who meet their needs, as well as help lawyers earn new clients.
