Need to Increase Your Business? Join The Lawyer Referral and Information Service!
The Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) is a public service of the non-profit Bucks County Bar Association. Each year the LRIS responds to thousands of callers, referring them to attorneys with experience in the appropriate area of law or to area agencies able to provide assistance.
The Bucks County Bar Association has established its Lawyer Referral Service to assist persons willing and able to pay usual and customary attorney fees in securing appropriate legal representation by referral to participants in the BCBA LRIS program. LRIS will endeavor to help an inquirer determine if the problem is legal by screening and when possible, refer non-legal matters to county, government or consumer agencies as appropriate. Persons identified as needing legal representation and who do not claim inability to pay an attorney will be referred by LRIS to a participating attorney. LRIS participation is open to all Bucks County Bar Association members having their primary office in Bucks County.
Inquiries from those who appear to be unable to pay reasonable fees for legal representation will be referred to the Bucks County Legal Aid Society, Public Defender’s Office or other providers of legal services on a pro bono basis. Individuals who cannot afford usual and customary fees and yet do not qualify for representation through Legal Aid, the Public Defender’s Office or other providers of pro bono service, may qualify for and receive representation through the Lawyer Referral and Information Service Marginal Referral Program.
