Lawyer Referral Service - Overview for Lawyers

SpokesThe Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) is a public service program that bridges the gap between the public and the legal community by assisting individuals who have legal questions but do not know where to turn. We serve the entire Northeast Ohio area, and over the past year alone our LRS received over 35,000 inquiries from individuals seeking legal assistance. In addition to meeting regulations mandated by the Supreme Court of Ohio, our LRS also meets the American Bar Association's standards for Lawyer Referral Services.

op_monIn the Fall of 2004 we began a television advertising campaign which airs locally on stations WOIO-TV and WUAB-TV and reaches approximately 2.1 million households in almost 50 Northern Ohio counties. In addition to marketing our Service on television, we also advertise in the Yellow Pages, which reaches approximately 1.1 million households. Potential fee generating referrals are directed to us from Legal Aid, other legal service providers and social service agencies.
