Many people in our community, who are dealing with the impacts of the current economic crisis, often wonder where they can
turn for help. For many of them, the answer is the Lawyer Referral Service (“LRS”) operated by our bar association.
Most of us are familiar with the traditional role that LRS plays with lawyers applying to serve on a panel, assisting people with questions regarding one aspect of the law. LRS, developed for people who are able to pay but do not know how to find one or what services they need, also serve as a way for our members to reach out to prospective clients.
While Lawyer Referral help those in our community, there are other ways the Indianapolis Bar provides support. Among them are the Modest Means Program, in person free advice programs like Ask a Lawyer, telephone advice through Legal Line, and low asset will programs to name a few.
The Lawyer Referral Service continues to need skilled and talented lawyers — lawyers like you — to meet the needs of all the people in our community who have legal concerns.
If you are not yet a member of LRS, please contact us and find out how you can join. If you are interested in providing community support in an area we do not offer, please let us know that as well.
Lawyer Referral offers a win-win situation. You can help people in our community and you can introduce yourself to prospective clients.•
