Service Description

The PBA Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) refers callers to lawyers in the counties that do not have a referral service of their own. This service covers 45 of the 67 counties in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Lawyers participate in this service on a voluntary basis and have indicated the areas of law in which they will accept referrals. Computerization ensures lawyers are rotated automatically by county according to the type of case. There is no charge for contacting the LRS. By using this service, the participating attorney agrees to grant Referral Service clients an initial consultation of up to one half-hour for a fee of $30; $15 of that fee shall be returned to the PBA Lawyer Referral Service with the client referral form. If it is the policy of the attorney to waive initial consultation fees, he/she is required to collect the $15 referral fee to be returned to the PBA. If callers need a lawyer in a state other than Pennsylvania, they may contact that state's bar association.
