Looking for a lawyer in Maine can be a difficult experience, especially if you are not familiar with the legal industry.  Many people therefore use attorney referral services.  These services offer a great first step in finding a lawyer, and can take much of the stress and difficulty out of the process.

The Maine State Bar Association offers a limited attorney referral service.  This service can be reached either by telephone or by submitting an online form.  After providing some basic information about yourself and your legal issue, a lawyer referral will be provided to you.  The Maine Bar charges $25 for this service.  However, your initial consultation with your lawyer is free of charge.

Finally, if you are looking for a more comprehensive service, you should consider using a private attorney referral service.  Many of these services offer their services online, so can be accessed 24 hours a day.  Also, they usually provide multiple lawyer referrals, along with information about those lawyers.  Lastly, these private referral services are generally free of charge, and the cost for your initial consultation with your lawyer is about $25 – $50.
