Finding legal service in New York can be stressful, especially when you are facing a serious legal issue such as crime, child-custody dispute, landlord dispute or a personal matter. However, for the last 35 years, the New York State Bar Association has provided a attorney referral service that connects the public with local attorneys who can best serve their needs.
The Lawyer Referral and Information Service recently launched a new online service that operates 24 hours a day.
The service is also made confidential. The Lawyer Referral and Information Service’s project was made in conjuction with Legal.io, which is a legal provider of software to lawyers and law firms. This new service works alongside 17 local referral services that are already operational in New York State.
The service is made free of charge, but if a client meets with an attorney, they are charged $35 for the first half-hour. Users answer a questionnaire which details their case and where they are located. The Lawyer Referral and Information Service then reviews the questionnaires and matches clients with lawyers who operated in the client’s community or nearby area.

The Lawyer Referral and Information Service still offers the phone service for those who prefer to use the old system. The New York State Bar have officially vetted and approved each attorney who is part of this new system. The New York State Bar confirms they are in proper legal standing. One attorney in good legal standing is Jeremy Goldstein.
