Public Resources_Lawyer Referral Program

Lawyer Referral Service

Need to find an attorney to take on your case? Our Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) team is here to help. When you call LRIS, you will be asked what county you are calling from and where in New York you would like to consult with an attorney. From there, the LRIS staff will ask you to describe your problem and will guide you towards the right resource for your situation, all under the strictest confidence. You can call our service at 800-342-3661 (M – F from 8 a.m. -12 p.m.) You can also request a referral online at: FindaLawyerNYS.org, or summit a question to [email protected]

Pro Bono Services

The NYSBA COVID-19 Pro Bono Network connects volunteer attorneys with New Yorkers in order to handle a surge in legal matters resulting from the coronavirus pandemic and ensuing economic fallout. Our volunteer attorneys are ready to help should you need assistance with handling the small estate of a loved one who passed away from COVID-19 or with claiming unemployment insurance benefits.

LEGALEase Pamphlets

Ever wished you had an easy way to explain a legal topic? The LEGALEase Pamphlet series was created by NYSBA’s Section and Committee members to do just that. From establishing a will to buying real estate, these pamphlets are the perfect way to share basic information with the general public.
