BASF maintains a state bar certified Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS), which was established in 1946. Knowledgeable, multi-lingual legal interviewers refer prospective clients to pre-qualified, ethical, insured attorneys in good standing with the State Bar of California, in over 20 principal practice areas and over 100 sub-areas of law. In addition, referrals are made to over 250 different legal resources in the Bay Area, when it is determined that the client’s needs are better served through a governmental or community based organization.
Attorneys interested in receiving client referrals from LRIS in their area of practice should apply to become LRIS members and must have a San Francisco or Marin County office.
The LRIS Attorney-to-Attorney Advice Program and Reduced Fee Services Program are available for newer attorneys who wish to participate while they are gaining legal experience.
Please contact Carole Conn, LRIS Director of Public Service Programs, at 415-782-8934 or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more, or visit www.sfbar.org/lawyerreferrals/att-join.aspx.
