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 free and lasts 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, they 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
