According to the New York State Bar Association, there are approximately 72,000 actively practicing lawyers in New York State. If all of the practicing attorneys “hung out their shingle” that would amount to 72,000 square feet of lumber, to the dismay of the home building industry.
Lawyer referral services are an excellent source of finding an attorney, but their services do not operate 24 hours a day. The New York State Bar Association put the internet to good use, to find lawyers in good standing. A person needing legal services would proceed to the website (https://nysbalris.legal.io), fill out the questionnaire, confidentially describing their legal issue and location. This referral service employs an online referral management technology. In 2016, the referral service responded to 10,000 inquiries.
Only a $35 fee will be charged for a 30-minute consultation, but the fee made be waived if a legal question is regarding a personal injury.
In New York State there are 17 local Bar Associations. A referral would be made directly to a Bar Association in the same local area as the person seeking a referral. Otherwise, a referral will be made which is not location specific to a Bar Association.

Finding a lawyer has never been easier with the new service launched by the New York State Bar Association. The Lawyer Referral and Information Service recently launched an online and telephone service by which the clients can find a suitable lawyer for their case with ease and without hassle. Regardless of the nature of the case, the clients always had trouble finding an appropriate lawyer for the case in hand. However, with this newly launched service, the customers can easily visit online, fill an online confidential questionnaire and upon review by the staff members of the NY State Bar Association, the client would be matched with an expert lawyer who can handle the kind of case client has.
Finding the right lawyer is essential to get the desired outcome; else it can increase the trouble for the customer. The new Lawyer Referral and information Service can be availed over the phone as well. The best part is that the customer is under no obligation to hire the lawyer they are matched with, and they just need to pay a small fee for the first half an hour of consultation, which is also waived off in case the matter is of personal injury or other such types of cases.
