Jeremy Goldstein, a reputed attorney and the Partner at Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC, welcomed the move by New York State Bar Association to start Lawyer Referral and Information Service or LRIS. The new service is helpful for people from New York to find a lawyer with experience and expertise from their locality and can get legal advice. LRIS is actually an online portal for people who wanted legal assistance, and it works 24 × 7 at https://nysbalris.legal.io/. The service has also added a telephone service to help the customers with immediate assistance.
The New York Bar Association developed the platform by collaborating with Legal.io, a leader in referral and marketplace management technology provider in the country specific for legal services. With the new service, any individual can go to the website and fill the details specifying the legal issue and their locality. The Bar Association staff reviews the issue and assign it to an attorney who is in that community or nearby. If the person is living in any of the 17 counties which have local referral service, the Bar Association will forward it to the respective County Bar. Though the referral is free, people have to pay $35 for the first 30 minutes consulting with the attorney. After the initial consultation, the customer has the option to continue with the lawyer or choose another.
