The New York State Bar Association’s trusted Lawyer Referral and Information Service partnered with Legal.io to develop the online portal for people to find lawyers when in need. The platform’s aim is to make the process easy and convenient as it works throughout the day and night. LRIS is the largest voluntary state bar association and it ensures that their lawyers are qualified and their credentials are reviewed before joining them.
The online portal will not only be beneficial to the public but to the lawyers too. According to Elena Jaffe Tastensen, LRIS has helped her grow her practice, and the new online platform will bring even more clients.
About Jeremy Goldstein
- An individual visits the portal (https://nysbalris.legal.io) and fills in the legal issue and location in a confidential questionnaire.
- LRIS reviews the questionnaire and matches with the nearest attorney. If the client lives in a locally run lawyer referral service, LRIS will direct the request to the county bar association.
- The client can consult with the matched lawyer at thirty-five dollars for thirty minutes fees unless it is a matter involving unemployment or worker’s compensation, social security, and such issues. If the individual decides to retain the attorney’s services, they will both discuss the additional fees.
