In the digital age, professionals and businesses are leveraging the power of the internet to make the offering of services easier. The people of New York now have an exciting and more convenient way of accessing legal information services.
The State Bar Association of New York has launched an online product, Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). The product provides clients with referrals to the best attorneys whenever they are in seeking legal advice or help.
The online service works this way: an individual looking for a lawyer logs into the website and reports his legal issue and locality through a questionnaire, the State Bar then analyses the form and connects the client with an attorney who’s within the customer’s vicinity.
In case the client resides in one of the counties that are served with a local lawyer referral service, the State Bar will send the customer’s appeal to the respective county bar association.
Referrals to attorneys are free but the initial 30 minutes of consultation attract a $35 fee. In the cases such as personal injury, social security, and medical negligence the consultation fee is waived.
One of the attorneys one should expect to be referred to is Jeremy Goldstein. Jeremey Goldstein is an attorney who specializes in shareholder activism and executive compensation.
Jeremy Goldstein is the founder of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC, a law firm that specializes in providing advisory to compensation committees and companies’ top management on matters executive compensation and business governance.
