Finding a lawyer in New York has been made easy and convenient, thanks to the Lawyer Referral Information Service (LRIS). LRIS, an arm of the New York State Bar Association, provides lawyers that can handle criminal cases, will writing, compliance issues among other legal matters. Recently, the organization launched a 24-hour online portal and telephone service through which New Yorkers can contact lawyers with maximum confidentiality. All the lawyers practicing under LRIS are approved by the New York State Bar Association.
A Word from the Bar Association President
Commenting on the new technology, President Claire P. Gutekunst of NYSBA pointed out that the portal would offer lawyers a wider client base. He further noted that given the stressful events that precede a legal process, the portal would offer a low-pressure legal process. Claire expressed gratitude towards Legal.io, the technological firm that developed the portal and commended it for doing a good job. CEO Tony Lai of Legal.io, on the other hand, emphasized the important role that lawyers play within the New York community. He expressed optimism that the new technology would go a long way in ensuring that New Yorkers received legal services at a cheaper cost.
