The New York State Bar Association is one of the most prestigious bar associations in the world. Few associations can boast such a long tenured history. It has been functioning since the 1800’s and is over 140 years old.It has dominated the legal system since it founding. Its membership base has held strong and steady through the changes of the legal system in the United States. These days it has roughly 75,000 active members.
Of all the services the New York State Bar Association offers none is more popular than its attorney referral service. Because of the New York State Bar Association the inconvenience of finding a local and experienced lawyer has become a more bearable task. The attorney referral service pairs individual in need of legal aid with local lawyers more than capable of meeting their individual needs. Recently, The New York State Bar Association has chosen to take it a step further via its Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). Its LRIS has formed a new 24 hour online portal where members of the public can request an attorney through the internet.
The best part about the online service is it’s free. It was created due to the partnership the bar association and legal.io, a legal system technology company that makes the latest software and IT solutions available to attorneys and law firms.
