New Yorkers now have a convenient and new way of locating a lawyer with suitable experience to handle their respective legal problem. The New York State Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service is behind the launch of a new online portal to help individuals seeking the services of an attorney.
Individuals are connected with attorneys whose credentials have been assessed by the New York State Bar Association. The New York State Bar Association collaborated with Legal.io. to come up with the portal.
How the Online Portal works
- First, one is expected to visit the website (https://nysbalris.legal.io) and fill out a private questionnaire, which allows them to describe their legal problem and location.
- The State Bar staff goes through the questionnaire then matches the person with a lawyer who operates in the same or neighboring area.
- For individuals who reside in one out of the 17 counties with a locally operating lawyer referral service, the State Bar sends a request to the respective county bar association.
- After the first consultation, the individual should not retain the lawyer to avoid extra attorney fees.
