When a legal issue comes up, such as a divorce or landlord-tenant problem, it can be difficult to find a lawyer to address it. The New York State Bar Association has launched a new service, Lawyer Referral and Information Service, which makes it far easier and more convenient. The online portal to this service can be found at https://nysbalris.legal.io, or the service can be reached by phone.
This service gives people a low-pressure way to get in contact with a lawyer that has an office near them and experience in whatever legal issue it is that they face. In order to get a referral, the individual fills in their information along with a description of their problem. This confidential information is then reviewed by the State Bar and the person is given the contact information for a nearby attorney. The referral is free and if the person decided to consult with the lawyer it is $35 for the first 30 minutes. The individual is not obligated to retain the lawyer.
