The residents of New York have a new option for locating an attorney. A Lawyer referral program has been launched by the New York State Bar Association and is available 24 hours daily. The lawyers credentials have been reviewed and they have a good legal standing. The online technology was developed with a partnership between Legal.io and the New York State Bar Association.
A person needing an attorney goes to the website and fills out a confidential questionnaire. This is reviewed by the staff of the State Bar and the person is matched with a lawyer. The State Bar can forward the request to 17 different counties. All referrals are free and the person is not required to retain the attorney. If the attorney is retained the fees are between the attorney and client. The referral program has been in operation for 35 years and now used new technology capable of helping attorneys increase their client base. The New York State Bar Association has 72,000 members and is the biggest voluntary State Bar association anywhere in the nation. They were originally founded in 1876.
