Whether you are seeking legal help in dealing with a criminal issue, writing your will, or child custody matters, you can now easily find an experienced lawyer online. The New York State Bar Association partnered with Legal.io (an organization that provides referral management technology for people in the legal industry) to develop a trusted online referral and information service that allows individuals to quickly find attorneys.
How the Online Service Works
You need to visit the website, https://nysbalris.legal.io, and fill out a questionnaire. The staff of the New York State Bar will then review the questionnaire and match you with a lawyer who’s at your location. After the referral, you will be required to pay $35 for the first thirty minutes consultation. This charge will, however, be exempted in cases of personal injury, medical malpractice or veterans and military law. After the initial consultation, you are not obligated to retain the attorney. If you choose to keep seeking advice from the lawyer, additional fees will be agreed upon between you and the lawyer.
