The Lawyer Referral Service, the largest public service
program of the Boston Bar Association, has launched a new website featuring an
online lawyer request form, and compatibility with all mobile and tablet device
technologies. Site visitors will also find updates on news related to the
Referral Service, such as upcoming events and trainings, as well as the
categories in which its panel of attorneys practices.
For over 50 years,
the Lawyer Referral Service of the BBA has been connecting members of the
community to lawyers and legal resources for representation, advice, and
information on legal issues. Often, people who contact the Lawyer Referral
Service cannot afford full fee representation, but through the service can
access options suited to their needs, like limited assistance and reduced fee
representation. The Referral Service staff now screens over 10,000 requests from
the public per year. It is also the only legal referral service in the Greater
Boston area to be accredited by the American Bar Association.
Referral Service can be found at www.bostonbarlawyer.org.
