At some point in your lifetime, you will need an attorney. Attorneys are often sought after during a high stress situation. Possible issues that require the service of an attorney is child custody issues, criminal matters, drawing up a will, landlord issues, and other legal matters.
New York has a simple, less stressful method in finding an attorney to fit your needs. It is a service called LRIS or Lawyer Referral and Information Service. This is a confidential service that is accessible 24 hours a day. To access this service you can go online or you can call. Individuals are placed with attorneys that have been reviewed by New York’s State Bar Association. This ensures that the attorney in question has credentials that are in good standing.
The online service, which is a new feature that was added, works by an individual going to the site and filling out a confidential survey that ask for insight about their current legal issue. The State Bar Association then reviews the survey and pars the individual with an attorney close by. The referrals are free but if the individual speaks with an attorney, they are charged a fee of $35 for a 30 minute consultation. Depending on the claim, there are exceptions made in cases like personal injury or social security. The consultation doesn’t legally bind the individual to the attorney. But if the individual decides to hire the attorney then additional fees will incur and be set up between the attorney and the individual.
