Do you need help finding a lawyer you can trust?
Our Lawyer Referral Service is here to build bridges between the public and lawyers in our community.

We help more than 10,000 people each year connect with an experienced attorney who can help their individual legal issues. Being referred is a great way to find an experienced lawyer who can help you with a legal problem you are experiencing. LRS can help connect you to the right attorney at the right time.
Plus, the referral and initial consultation are always FREE!

Upon being referred, simply call and speak with the lawyer's office. Neither you nor the lawyer are obligated to go any further than that. If the lawyer can help and agrees to represent you, negotiate legal fees as normal and have the peace of mind of knowing you have been connected with an experienced and reputable attorney registered with our service. All attorneys on the LRS are in good standing with the Ohio Supreme Court and maintain professional liability insurance. If the lawyer cannot help you, you are welcome to contact LRS again for additional referral(s).
