Most often than not the need to engage legal services is a matter of urgency, and being able to use the web and access a lawyer anytime, comes as a welcome relief. The New York Bar Association through their Legal Referral and Information System has infused technology into their legal services, by partnering with Legal.io to launch an online portal. This portal works by matching a potential client with a lawyer and is fast and reliable.
The online portal has an accredited list of lawyers of sound reputation. All an individual has to do is go to the website (https://nysbalris.legal.io) and fill out a confidential questionnaire describing the nature of their legal matter. A support team screens the questionnaires, who then match an individual with the most suitable lawyer from within their county. There are 17 counties with this Legal Referral service. The referral is not charged. However, consulting the referral lawyer attracts a fee of $35 for the first thirty minutes. Any further engagement will be at an agreed upon fee between the individual and the attorney. The individual is not under any obligation to retain the referred lawyer.
The Online portal is fast, safe, convenient and reliable with an additional 24/7 support team that can is reachable through calls on 1-800-342-3661.The Lawyer Referral Information System has been used by the New York Bar Association for the last 36 years and is very efficient.
