The New York State Bar Association in partnership with the LRIS established an online portal for individuals looking for lawyers. This service eased the process of looking for a lawyer to handle cases such as child custody, landlord-tenant issues, and other cases.
The launch of an online platform for lawyers
According to the state bar’s chairperson, Claire P. Gutekunst, the Lawyer Referral and Information Services is experienced in matching clients with the attorneys who have excellent legal standing. All lawyers working with this organization have been reviewed and certified by the New York State Bar Association. Chief Executive Officer Tony Lai acknowledged that this partnership would increase the delivery of legal services to masses of people at a lower cost. The operation of the portal is easy, and it involves a customer filling up the form online stating the legal issue and their location. After the request is reviewed by the Lawyer Referral and Information Service, a client is matched with an appropriate attorney.
