Everyone needs a lawyer for some reason, whether it be to settle a criminal matter, or solve a child custody problem or even help with writing a will. People in New York have a new and quick way of finding a lawyer. The New York State Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service launched a online portal for those in New York who are in need of legal help. The service is available 24 hours a day and is completely confidential.
The New York State Bar Association created this program with the help of Legal.io, which provides referral management tech for the legal field. This new service allows lawyers to deliver services to more people and at a cheaper rate. Under the new system, someone who need a lawyer will complete a questionnaire which is then reviewed by The New York State Bar who matches the client with an attorney in the same area.
The service offers free referrals, however if the person talks to a lawyer to who they have been referred to, they must pay a $35 fee for the first half-hour consult. Exceptions can be made if the legal issue brought up involves personal injury, unemployment, veterans and military law and even medical malpractice.
One lawyer you could end up with through this service is Jeremy Goldstein. He is the founder of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates. Jeremy Goldstein is a leading expert on executive pay and compensation. He is also a star litigation lawyer.
Jeremy Goldstein has been a key player in many of the largest corporate transactions of the last 10 years including the Verizon Wireless and ALLTEL Corporation merger, the United Technologies acquisition of Goodrich.
