The New York State Bar Association through the division of Lawyer Referral and Information Service recently developed an online portal for finding legal assistance. This development was done in collaboration with Legal.io. This portal will help the residents to find lawyers with ease at any time of the day. It also forms a platform where anyone around the globe can access the New York State law. According to the New York State Bar President, Claire P. Gutekunst, the bar ensures that the lawyer’s qualifications pass through a verification process. This process assures an affordable, top-notch legal representation. The portal exposes the attorneys to a wider clientele base that will grow their practices.
Accessing the portal is easy and confidential. Individuals are required to fill in details of their legal issue and location. The State Bar’s personnel then matches the person with a lawyer based on the locality indicated at no cost. Seventeen counties in New York have active lawyer referral services locally. The staff forwards applications from residents of these counties to the respective bar association. The New York State Bar Association has carried out this kind of activity for over three decades. With the skills mastered over the years, the bar guarantees a professional experience. Consultation fees are very favorable; the first half an hour requires $35. The bar exempts cases involving personal injury, medical malpractice, social security, military and veterans, workers compensation, and unemployment from this clause. The decision to take up the lawyer provided lies with the individual.
