There’s no secret that navigating today’s legal system can be a bit of a pain. Finding a skilled lawyer to fit your own personal legal issues can be as tough a task as any. The New York State Bar Association, well aware of this, has devoted a lot of time and resources to making its attorney referral service the best it can be. Through the years the bar association has continued to improve upon the service.
Its respected Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) is modernizing the New York State bar Association’s referral service. The LRIS has launched a one of a kind online portal designed to cater to the legal needs of members of the public and match them with locally skilled attorneys. It will be available 24 hours a day and work in conjunction with the LRIS’ already successful telephone service. According to the New York State Bar Association’s trained staff, the voluntary state bar association received more than 10,000 phone calls last year.
Legal.io, a legal provider of software and other IT solutions to attorneys and law firms, had a huge hand in the development of the new online service. The partnership between the two organizations is instrumental to the success of the online portal. Individuals seeking an attorney will be able to find one online without all the usual hassle.
