Lawyer Referral

October 28, 2015

Below we list a few different lawyer referral services in New York state but there are many more. If you do not see your county represented below, you can find a listing of each county’s Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service on the American Bar Association website. If you are a victim of abuse, you may want to ask the Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service whether or not they screen for lawyers who are experienced in handling domestic violence cases. For a suggested list of questions to ask regarding the lawyer’s fees and experience when interviewing an attorney, go to our Choosing and Working with a Lawyer page.
