Finding a Lawyer: The Lawyer Referral & Information Service
There really isn't a better place to start when you need advice, guidance or to hire an attorney than the Erie County Bar Association (PA) and its Lawyer Referral & Information Service. This LRIS meets the American Bar Association's strict standards for lawyer referral services and has been in existence for more than 40 years.
Like attorneys you see advertising on TV, the LRIS offers FREE consultations in areas of law like accident injuries, dog bites, motorcycle accidents injuries, denial or stoppage of workers' compensation and denial of Social Security (SSI or SSD.) Offering free consultations in these areas of law is common practice.
The LRIS trained staff will connect you with a qualified attorney and provide you with either a free consultation or a reduced-rate consultation so that you can meet with the attorney (not his or her paralegal.) If you live outside of the area but need assistance from an Erie attorney, those arrangements can easily be made also.
The LRIS continually evaluates its attorneys for customer satisfaction. Staff is available to assist you Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. You can also contact the LRIS on this website:www.eriebar.com. 9/11
If you need an attorney and don't have one, the Lawyer Referral and Information Service can help.
