Open for Business

The City Bar’s building is closed for everyone’s safety, but the New York City Bar Legal Referral Service (LRS) is open for business and many of our services continue.

Our LRS Team is working remotely during our regular hours of operation – Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM EST. You may call us during business hours or complete the Request Form online at any time.

Please try and avoid contacting us by U.S. Mail. We are unable to retrieve and review U.S. Mail on a regular basis and cannot respond by  U.S. Mail at this time.

If we refer you to an LRS lawyer and you are unable to get into contact with that lawyer, please let us know right away so that we can try to refer you to another.
