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. I am compelled to announce that I am not posting under any Smith monikers here. That said, the post below does have a certain ring to it that sounds familiar to me: http://www.catholicnewworld.com/cnwonline/2014/0907/cardinal.aspx

  2. As an adoptive parent, I have to say this situation was as shameful as it gets. While the state government opens its wallet to the Simons and their friends, it denied payments to the most vulnerable in our state. Thanks Mitch!

  3. We as lawyers who have given up the range of First amendment freedom that other people possess, so that we can have a license to practice in the courts of the state and make gobs of money, that we agree to combat the hateful and bigoted discrimination enshrined in the law by democratic majorities, that Law Lord Posner has graciously explained for us....... We must now unhesitatingly condemn the sincerely held religious beliefs of religiously observant Catholics, Muslims, Christians, and Jewish persons alike who yet adhere to Scriptural exhortations concerning sodomites and catamites..... No tolerance will be extended to intolerance, and we must hate the haters most zealously! And in our public explanations of this constitutional garbledygook, when doing the balancing act, we must remember that the state always pushes its finger down on the individualism side of the scale at every turn and at every juncture no matter what the cost to society.....to elevate the values of a minority over the values of the majority is now the defining feature of American "Democracy..." we must remember our role in tricking Americans to think that this is desirable in spite of their own democratically expressed values being trashed. As a secular republic the United States might as well be officially atheist, religious people are now all bigots and will soon be treated with the same contempt that kluckers were in recent times..... The most important thing is that any source of moral authority besides the state be absolutely crushed.

  4. In my recent article in Indiana Lawyer, I noted that grass roots marketing -- reaching out and touching people -- is still one of the best forms of advertising today. It's often forgotten in the midst of all of today's "newer wave" marketing techniques. Shaking hands and kissing babies is what politicians have done for year and it still works. These are perfect examples of building goodwill. Kudos to these firms. Make "grass roots" an essential part of your marketing plan. Jon Quick QPRmarketing.com

  5. Hi, Who can I speak to regarding advertising today? Thanks, Gary
