Many people do not know where to begin when they need to find a lawyer. In Alabama, there are several resources available to aid you in your search.
The Alabama State Bar offers an attorney referral service on its website. The service categorizes its search first based on the general legal area you are concerned with, and then more specific legal topics. After inputting your location and some basic information about yourself, the service will then provide one lawyer referral. Although this service is free to use, the initial consultation with your lawyer is $50.
In addition to the service offered by the Alabama Bar, both the Birmingham and Mobile Bar Associations offer their own lawyer referrals.
The Birmingham Bar offers a simple service on their website. After picking the area of law you are concerned with, the service provides a list of all lawyers that practice in that area. While this service is free to use, there is no information about the cost of the initial consultation.
The Mobile Bar offers a more traditional attorney referral service. You must call the Mobile Bar Association, and then, they will provide one lawyer referral. This service is free of charge, but the cost for your initial consultation with your lawyer is $15.
Many people choose to use a private attorney referral service, since services often offer a more complete option. These services, such as LegalMatch, can be found online. Most of these private attorney referral services are convenient and completely free. For example, at LegalMatch, you can post your case online to local attorneys for free within minutes.
