Residents of New York can now get a lawyer in their community through an online portal. The portal is a part of the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) that is managed by the New York State Bar Association.
The service is available at all hours of the day. It is private and confidential. There is also an option of securing a lawyer by calling the LRIS telephone service. Claire Gutekunst is the president of the State Bar. Claire noted that people often need lawyers during stressful times. She said that the Lawyer Referral and Information Service was a low-pressure way for people to get legal help. Gutenkust stated that individuals were supposed to be confident that they would be matched with competent lawyers whose credentials had been approved by the bar association of the state of New York.
