Recently a new online portal was launched which will help people who need assistance with an issue related to New York law be matched with a lawyer. This online portal was created by the New York State Bar Association’s sub-organization titled the “Lawyer Referral and Information Service” (LRIS). This service partnered with a technological company called Legal.io, which had put up similar online portals along with other organizations. The online portal will be open all hours of the day, and the services are completely confidential.
The portal, which can be accessed at “https://nysbalris.legal.io” will make it much more convenient and less stressful for individuals to be matched with a lawyer who is the right fit for their area of concern. All a person who needs a lawyer must do, once they get onto the portal, is to fill out a questionnaire about their situation. Then, the New York State bar will either forward the questionnaire to the correct county, or will work to make a match for the individual, with a lawyer who is local and whose skill set is well suited to the case. The service is free, and will help individuals connect with lawyers. It will also help lawyers expand their practice and provide their services to more individuals in need of help.
