When it comes time to hire an attorney, many people in Nebraska do not know where to begin.  Many state bar associations offer an attorney referral service, which provide a great first step in finding a Nebraska lawyer.  Unfortunately, the Nebraska State Bar does not offer lawyer referrals.

The Omaha Bar Association does offer an attorney referral service.  This service covers 4 counties in Nebraska.  Information on how to contact the service, and the counties covered, can be found on the American Bar Association’s (ABA) website.  After filling out a simply online form providing basic information about yourself and your case, a lawyer referral is provided.  This service is free to use, and your initial consultation with your lawyer is only $40.

If you live in an area in Nebraska not covered by the Omaha Bar’s service, you should consider using a private attorney referral service.  These services can easily be found online, and often provide multiple lawyer referrals.  Also, most of these services provide information about the lawyers they are referring, which helps you choose the attorney that is right for you.  Finally, most of these private referral services are free to use, and the fee for your initial consultation with your lawyer is kept low.

Even though the Nebraska State Bar does not offer an attorney referral service, there are resources available to you.  A full review of available lawyer referral services can be found here if you live in the city of Omaha or Douglas County: Lawyer Referral Services in Douglas County, NE.
