Connecting with the right attorney can be a challenging experience. This article offers a brief guide to finding an attorney in Georgia through public or private referral services.

State Bar of Georgia

Many people start their search for an attorney by inquiring in their state bar. Unfortunately, like many states, the State Bar of Georgia does not have its own attorney referral service. Instead, the State Bar of Georgia keeps a list of lawyer referral services, in which they prescreened. These services range from local lawyer referrals to national organizations that are focused on a specific subject, like family law or bankruptcy.

Local County Bar Associations

Several county bar associations in Georgia have their own attorney referral services. These services often will provide lawyer referrals for the neighboring counties as well. Contact information for these lawyer referral services, plus a list of what areas they cover, can be found at the American Bar Association’s website.

Private Lawyer Referral Services

Private lawyer referral services are often the most convenient method for contacting a local attorney. At LegalMatch, you can post your case to a Georgia attorney within a few minutes. Best of all, this service is completely free.
