It is easier than ever to get lawyer services in the New York area. I mean it was already pretty easy, but is has become easier now that the New York State Bar Association has partnered with Legal.io to connect prospective clients with the appropriate lawyer via an online portal. Initially this service was only available through a telephone service. The New York State Bar Association closely monitors each lawyer to see if they’re in good legal standing. They then make them a member of the New York State Bar Association and available to match as a lawyer who can offer services to clients. This technology that the New York State Bar association has developed in is partnership with Legal.io.
The service is very easy to use and has been for over 35 years. The person looking for a lawyer simply fills out an online form and then is matched with an attorney who practices nearby. The form is then looked at closely by the New York State Bar Association who then forwards the information. The service is free up until you go past the referral process or after you choose to go on with services after the initial consultation. Those seeking consultation are not obligated to go on with the lawyer’s services.
The service has helped both lawyers and clients for years. And now their new portal has only made things easier. Law practices are growing as more clients are being helped through the service.
