An experienced LRIS representative will ask you a few questions. These questions help us determine what kind of lawyer or legal service you may need. The LRIS representative will call you call back within one or two days with information about your referral. During this time, we find a lawyer who agrees to meet with you regarding your legal matter.
We'll give you the name of the lawyer who has agreed to meet with you, and the date/time/location of your first meeting.

A $35 fee is usually charged for this first meeting. For injury matters, there is no fee to consult a lawyer. At the meeting, the lawyer will discuss what to do next.
