Discuss your legal question with one of our attorney referral counselors or briefly explain your legal issue and what results you would like to see.
Our attorney referral counselors will discuss your legal question with you or review your submission. All information you provide will be kept confidential to the fullest extent possible under the law.
Get referred to a lawyer or appropriate resource.
If we determine you will benefit from working with a lawyer, we will refer you to a screened and qualified New York City Bar Legal Referral Service (LRS) lawyer. However, sometimes we help you figure out you don’t need a lawyer. In that case, we will refer you to other helpful resources that might be better or more cost-effective for you.
If we refer to you to an LRS lawyer, your next step is to contact the lawyer yourself to schedule an initial consultation. Initial consultations are $35 or free, depending on the type of case, and last for up to 30 minutes. You must be prepared to pay the lawyer at the time of your consultation. If you and the lawyer decide to continue to work together, you will arrange any additional fees with the lawyer.
Free consultations are provided for:
- Personal Injury: false arrest/assault, slip and fall, car accidents, and other accidental injuries
- Medical Malpractice: surgery mistakes, incorrect diagnoses
- State Workers’ Compensation: on the job injuries
- Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI): claim denials
All other types of cases
