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. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  5. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer. (See Rick Simpson's Oil on the internet or facebook).
