Several motives can sway an individual to find an attorney. This drive may be due to a contention on child custody, landlord-tenant disagreements, a criminal charge or any other legal matter. As daunting task as the search for the lawyer is, New Yorkers can finally grin, for there is a convenient means of going about the search.
A new online portal for a Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) has been initiated by the New York State Bar Association to help persons in search of legal counsel find suitable advocates. The digital portal is an alternative to telephone services, though the 24-hour online portal, https://nysbalris.legal.io. upholds privacy and confidentiality.
“Stressful times call for expert lawyers. Our LRIS eliminates that comes when on that verge. Individuals can develop confidence and trust in lawyers whose credentials have been keenly scrutinized by the State Bar,” said the 72, 000-member State Bar’s President, Claire P. Gutekunst.
The portal is as a result of the partnership between the SBA and the nationwide vendor for the marketplace and technological referral system in the legal sector, Legal.io.
Legal.io CEO, Tony Lai, applauded the partnership and said, “We take pride in partnering with one of the leading association of lawyers. The aim is to reinstitute new models through which lawyers can enhance their industrial scalability to reach out to a wider client base at an affordable cost, and to develop an easy-to-navigate online destination for enterprises and individuals globally.”
