Welcome to the North Carolina Lawyer Referral Service (LRS). North Carolina's Lawyer Referral Service is a public service of the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation. Lawyers who are members of the LRS welcome your call and may be able to provide answers to your legal questions.

The LRS provides a referral to a lawyer in your county, and may be able to provide information regarding other legal resources that may be available to you.  The lawyers who accept referrals through the referral service charge a fee of no more than $50 for the initial 30-minute consultation.  Fees for consultations longer than 30 minutes and fees for representation are set by each lawyer.  Lawyers who accept referrals through the referral service do not work for free.

We do not provide referrals to pro bono (free) attorneys. 

Please click "for the public" to access information for people who need a referral, including an online referral, contact information for LRS, and frequently asked questions about the LRS.  Please click "for lawyers" if you are a lawyer who needs to manage your profile, join LRS, or renew your LRS membership.
