Why Use an Attorney Referral Service?

Find a Local Lawyer near You

Trying to find the lawyer can be a stressful experience, especially if you are unfamiliar with the legal system.  Using an attorney referral service can certainly reduce the confusion and stress associated with finding a good lawyer.

First, attorney referral services allow you to find a lawyer that can help with your particular case.  Just as in the medical field, lawyers tend to specialize in a certain area of the law.  An attorney referral service will provide referrals only for lawyers that are experienced in the area of law that you are concerned with. 

Second, most attorney referral services include information about the lawyers they recommend.  This information usually includes the lawyers’ education and work history, and often will include a short bio.

Finally, attorney referral services usually have negotiated a low fee for your first visit with a lawyer (the “initial consultation”).  This allows you to meet with several lawyers in order to find the right one without running up a huge bill at the same time.

Finding the right lawyer for you can be a confusing and stressful experience.  An attorney referral service does quite a bit of the work for you, and provides you with information to help you make the right choice.
