IBA: Lawyer Referral

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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.•

  1. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  2. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."

  3. wow is this a bunch of bs! i know the facts!

  4. MCBA .... time for a new release about your entire membership (or is it just the alter ego) being "saddened and disappointed" in the failure to lynch a police officer protecting himself in the line of duty. But this time against Eric Holder and the Federal Bureau of Investigation: "WASHINGTON — Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday." http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/22/us/justice-department-ferguson-civil-rights-darren-wilson.html?ref=us&_r=0

  5. Dr wail asfour lives 3 hours from the hospital,where if he gets an emergency at least he needs three hours,while even if he is on call he should be in a location where it gives him max 10 minutes to be beside the patient,they get paid double on their on call days ,where look how they handle it,so if the death of the patient occurs on weekend and these doctors still repeat same pattern such issue should be raised,they should be closer to the patient.on other hand if all the death occured on the absence of the Dr and the nurses handle it,the nurses should get trained how to function appearntly they not that good,if the Dr lives 3 hours far from the hospital on his call days he should sleep in the hospital
