The San Francisco-Marin Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) offers legal assistance from insured lawyers who are evaluated for experience in over 100 legal areas.
How Does It Work?
When you call, an experienced LRIS representative will ask you a few questions. These questions help us determine what kind of lawyer or legal service you may need. The LRIS representative will call you back within one or two business days with information about your referral. During this time, we find a lawyer who agrees to meet with you about your legal matter. We'll give you the name of the lawyer who has agreed to meet with you, and the date, time, and location of your first meeting.
What Does It Cost?
If you have been injured, the referral and the first 30-minute consultation with your lawyer is absolutely free. For all other legal issues, you pay $35 for the referral, which includes the first 30-minute consultation.
For the California Relay Service: Dial 711 or, from TTY, dial (800) 735-2929, or visit California Relay Service for more information.
