New York residents who are looking for a lawyer now have a new way to connect with a trusted legal advisor.
The Lawyer Referral and Information Service operated by the New York Bar Association has recently launched a confidential online portal at https://nysbalris.legal.io that provides assistance to those who want to hire a lawyer.
Here’s how the system works: Individuals requiring a lawyer go to the website and fill out a confidential form outlining their legal issue. New York State Bar staffers then review the submission and match the person up with an attorney. Referrals are free, but if the person talks with the attorney to whom they have been matched, there is a $35 fee for the first half-hour consultation. The individual is under no obligation to hire the lawyer after the first meeting.
