Lawyer Referral Service
The MCBA's Lawyer Referral Service puts you in touch with the right lawyer, right away.
Finding your way through the legal system is difficult. Many people don’t know where to turn when a legal problem arises. The Lawyer Referral Service is an important public service of the Monroe County Bar Association and has been connecting people with the right lawyer for over 25 years. We are the leader in the area connecting over 1,100 people a year with over 70 separate, experienced attorneys that can handle their case.
How it works:
Call 585-546-2130 or fill out the form below, the LRS staff will confidentially evaluate your situation to see if a referral is appropriate. The LRS staff are NOT attorneys and cannot provide you with any legal advice. If you need an attorney and there is a panel member properly suited for your legal issue, the LRS staff will charge you a $40.00 referral fee (in most situations). In turn, the attorney will consult with you for up to a half hour at no charge. You will be referred to an attorney to contact regarding your case.
