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. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  2. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.

  3. This article is excellent and should be required reading for all attorneys and would-be attorneys, regardless of age or experience. I've caught myself committing several of the errors mentioned.

  4. Bill Satterlee is, indeed, a true jazz aficionado. Part of my legal career was spent as an associate attorney with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans in Valparaiso. Bill was instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing me to jazz music, thereby fostering my love for this genre. We would, occasionally, travel to Chicago on weekends and sit in on some outstanding jazz sessions at Andy's on Hubbard Street. Had it not been for Bill's love of jazz music, I never would have had the good fortune of hearing it played live at Andy's. And, most likely, I might never have begun listening to it as much as I do. Thanks, Bill.

  5. The child support award is many times what the custodial parent earns, and exceeds the actual costs of providing for the children's needs. My fiance and I have agreed that if we divorce, that the children will be provided for using a shared checking account like this one(http://www.mediate.com/articles/if_they_can_do_parenting_plans.cfm) to avoid the hidden alimony in Indiana's child support guidelines.
