Find a Lawyer

Legal Referral Service

The City Bar's Legal Referral Service (LRS) provides referrals to screened and qualified lawyers for a wide variety of legal matters. Call the LRS at 212-626-7373 (Español 212-626-7374) to discuss your legal question with an attorney referral counselor or submit it online.

If you are referred to an LRS lawyer, your initial consultation will be $35 or free, depending on the type of case. Consultations last up to 30 minutes. However, sometimes an LRS attorney referral counselor will help you figure out that you don’t need a lawyer. In that case, s/he will refer you to other helpful resources that might be better or more cost-effective for you. There is no charge to speak with an attorney referral counselor.

Request a Speaker

The LRS can provide your office, community group, school, or organization with an experienced lawyer who will give a free presentation on a specific legal topic. Each presentation is followed by a question and answer session. The entire program can be completed in one hour, or more, depending upon your needs. For more information or to request a guest speaker, please contact the LRS at 212-382-4730 or
