A lawyer may be sought for various reasons be it criminal matters, writing a will, children custody among other reasons. Looking for an attorney could be draining. New York has a new way of helping the New Yorkers find lawyers with relevant experience to handle their issues, and yet be from the clients’ community. The search for a lawyer has been made easier by The New York State Bar Association.
Through Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS), it has succeeded in launching a portal that will offer the services needed for 24 hours. Individuals will be matched correctly with lawyers. The lawyers’ credentials have been reviewed by the New York State Bar Association. The platform will enable an attorney to reach a greater number of people and offer the services at a lower cost.
The process of using the portal is relatively straightforward. The person in need of a lawyer needs to go to the website and fill a questionnaire. The State Bar Association then reviews the survey, and the person is linked to an attorney located in the community. The referrals are free. If an individual gets to talk with the lawyer that he/she has been referred to, a fee of $35 is applicable for the first 30 minutes of consultation.
The New York State Bar Association has a membership of 72000 which is the largest voluntary state bar countywide. It was established in the year 1876.
