Using a Lawyer Referral and Information Service

Bar Association ApprovedIt can be stressful and sometimes frightening to encounter a legal problem, especially if you have never had experience with lawyers and the justice system. You might need legal advice, counseling or representation, but don't know where to search for the right lawyer.

People who face this problem make up the thousands who call Lawyer Referral and Information Services (LRIS). A Lawyer Referral and Information Service is an organization or agency that refers potential clients to qualified lawyers who can help them.

Lawyer Referral Services operate to provide clients with the help they need. The member lawyers are in good standing with the State Bar and have no public disciplinary complaints. They carry Professional Liability Insurance and have pre-established experience in the area of law they take referrals in.

A certified LRIS can provide consumers with lawyers who practice bankruptcy, probate, family law, immigration law, serious personal injury law and other areas of law.

When a client calls a Lawyer Referral Service, a legal analyst asks the caller several screening questions such as location, area of law and a brief summary of legal issue. After determining the nature of the legal problem, the analyst searches for a member attorney and provides the potential client with the attorney's information. The legal analyst can then directly connect the potential client to speak with the attorney's office.

If a client would like to check on the attorney's credentials, an LRIS can also perform a background check. An attorney background check can provide clients with a particular attorney's certifications, specializations, State Bar Records, years of experience, ratings, credentials, and in some cases, verdicts and settlements.

Using an LRIS can save you the time and energy it would take to search the Yellow Pages, ask for recommendations, check advertisements or surf the Internet.
