Everyone experiences a legal crisis of some kind in their lives, whether its a crime, child custody dispute, personal matter or even a landlord-tenant dispute. We know landlords can be tricky to deal with. Being forced to find the right lawyer can be stressful and very taxing. However, New Yorkers now have a service that will help them find the right lawyer. The New York State Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service just launched a new online service, that is available 24 hours and day stays confidential.
The attorneys offered through this new online portal have been properly vetted and reviewed by The New York State Bar Association. Those who rely on New York laws will not have to worry about being matched with a lawyer who is not in proper legal standing. This new service allows attorneys to provide their services to more people ,while also reducing their prices. The New York State Bar Association developed this service with the help of Legal.io, a national provider of referral technology.
This new online process is extremely simplified. Those seeking legal advice, fill out a questionnaire that details their issue and where they are located. The form is then reviewed by a panel and then matched with a lawyer within the person’s community or nearby area. The referrals are free, however after 30 minutes of consult with an attorney, there is a $35 fee.
