Build your client base. Membership in the Lawyer Referral & Information Service is a prominent and profitable form of advertising. For over 45 years, the public has looked to the Orange County Bar Association’s LRIS for legal assistance. Clients referred to LRIS attorneys become sources of referrals for friends and relatives, and often return to LRIS themselves when legal services are needed.
Trained LRIS representatives carefully screen each call. Only callers in need of legal assistance and able to pay attorneys’ fees are referred to LRIS panel members. Those who cannot afford attorneys’ fees are guided toward community pro bono services or to attorneys in the LRIS Modest Means Program.
LRIS distinguishes itself in the Orange County community by meeting American Bar Association standards and being State-Bar certified.
LRIS is a public service sponsored by the Orange County Bar Association. To join, call the LRIS Administrator at (949) 440-6700.
