The Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) is a public service of the non-profit Bucks County Bar Association.
Each year the LRIS responds to thousands of callers, referring them to
attorneys with experience in the appropriate area of law or to area agencies
able to provide assistance.
The Bucks County Bar Association has
established its Lawyer Referral Service to assist persons willing and able to
pay usual and customary attorney fees in securing appropriate legal
representation by referral to participants in the BCBA LRIS program. LRIS
will endeavor to help an inquirer determine if the problem is legal by
screening and when possible, refer non-legal matters to county, government or
consumer agencies as appropriate. Persons identified as needing legal
representation and who do not claim inability to pay an attorney will be
referred by LRIS to a participating attorney. LRIS participation is open to
all Bucks County Bar Association members having their primary office in Bucks
Inquiries from those who appear to be unable
to pay reasonable fees for legal representation will be referred to the Bucks
County Legal Aid Society, Public Defender's Office or other providers of
legal services on a pro bono basis. Individuals who cannot afford usual and
customary fees and yet do not qualify for representation through Legal Aid,
the Public Defender's Office or other providers of pro bono service, may
qualify for and receive representation through the Lawyer Referral and Information Service
Marginal Referral Program.
