New Yorkers have a convenient way to find a lawyer from the comfort of their home. The New York State Bar Association Trusted Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) launched an online portal for individuals needing a lawyer. Open 24 hours, the LRIS matches individuals in their home with a trusted lawyer in good standing with great credentials who have been reviewed by the New York State Bar Association.
Once an individual accesses the online service, he or she fills out a questionnaire describing the legal issue and location The LRIS reviews the questionnaire and matches the individual with a local attorney in the same or a nearby community. The referrals are free of charge, but if the individual decides to talk to the lawyer, there is a $35 free for the first half hour of consultation. The consultation fee will be waived if the matter involves personal injury, social security, unemployment, military law, or worker’s compensation. Individuals are never under obligation to retain the lawyer, but if retained, fees will be established by lawyer.
Established for 35 years, the LRIS has handled over 10,000 phone calls. The new 24 hour phone service can be accessed at 1-800-342-3661 during regular business hours. The screened client referral system could match you with Jeremy Goldstein, partner at Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC.
