The task of looking for a lawyer in times of distress can prove difficult. It is with this in mind that The New York State Bar Association’s trusted Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) created an online portal that helps New York residents ease the burden all around the clock. The creation was done in collaboration with Legal.io, a firm that provides technology solutions for the legal industry. This portal can be confidentially accessed at https://nysbalris.legal.io. The telephone services are, however, still available for anyone who would opt to use them. The lawyers available here are vetted by the New York state Bar Association, guaranteeing the citizens affordable high-end legal representation. The lawyers also get the opportunity to expand their services to a larger clientele.
How It Works
Once an individual fills their case details and location on a confidential form in the portal, the State Bar locates an attorney who matches the details provided or forwards the case to regional offices for individuals coming from those regions. The fees included are affordable as the referrals are done freely, and the person pays $35 for a half an hour of consultation, with an exception to special cases. These special cases include veterans and military law, social security, personal injury, medical malpractice, and workers compensation. Other fees are only added if the individual opts to hire the lawyer’s services further.
