To reach the Lawyer Referral Service by phone, please call 1-800-662-7660 or 1-919-677-8574
LRS member lawyers make themselves available for a one-time meeting at a reduced rate, charging a fee of no more than $50 for an initial 30-minute consultation. Fees for consultations longer than 30 minutes and fees for ongoing representation are set by each lawyer.
Lawyers who accept referrals through the referral service do not work for free.
The NCBA and the LRS cannot refer you to free legal services. However, if you cannot afford to hire an attorney you may qualify for help through Legal Aid of North Carolina. If you need assistance with shelter, food or emergency support, please contact the 2-1-1 service.
