For The Public
WHAT IS THE NC LAWYERS REFERRAL SERVICE (LRS)?
The NC Lawyer Referral Service is a nonprofit public service sponsored by the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation. While using the Service you can be confident that you’ll be referred to an attorney who is in good standing, able to answer your legal questions and if necessary will provide representation.
We do not make referrals to Pro Bono, or free, attorneys. Legal Aid of NC provides assistance for some legal matters for qualified individuals.
HOW MUCH DOES THE LRS COST?
Attorneys participating in the LRS agree to charge no more than $50 (price increase effective for referrals made beginning January 2010) for the first 30 minutes of the initial consultation.
HOW DO I CONTACT THE LRS?
The NC Lawyer Referral Service is available to you by telephone (Call Center) or online (NC Find-a-Lawyer).
By contacting the Call Center, you will speak with an LRS specialist who will interview you to determine what area of law best fits your situation. In counties where no LRS attorneys are present, LRS will attempt to locate attorneys in nearby counties.
If you choose to use NC Find-a-Lawyer, online referral service, you will proceed step by step through a brief questionnaire (name, county, area of law) which initiates the referral process. NC Find-a-Lawyer is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and referrals are not subject to any review by LRS staff members.
