How It Works

See how our Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) simplifies the process of finding the right kind of lawyer you need to help resolve your issue.

Receive a 30-minute consultation

If you use the self-referral program you will be sent the name and contact information for a local attorney immediately via email. You should call the attorney promptly during business hours and set an appointment for a 30-minute consultation. HOW TO USE THE 24/7 SELF-REFERRAL

If you choose to speak with a member of our team or complete our online form, they will set the appointment with the attorney at a time that is convenient for you, usually within 24 – 48 hours.

Make payment

We charge a $45 non-refundable administrative fee to refer you to one attorney. The $45 administrative fee is non-refundable once your appointment has been scheduled.

If we determine your case to be a plaintiff’s personal injury, an employee Workers’ Compensation or Social Security Disability issue, you will not be charged the $45 administrative fee.

All attorneys have been certified by the State Bar to practice law in the particular area of law you need. This fee can be paid online, over the phone or by sending a check payable to LRIS to the following address:

2300 Clayton Road, Suite 520
Concord, CA 94520

Meet with your lawyer

Get the meeting details

Once your payment has been received, we’ll call you with the date and time of your 30-minute consultation, and the name, address and phone number of your lawyer.

How much will it cost?

There are no pro bono attorneys in the LRIS. These attorneys are in private practice and set their own fees. To avoid surprises later on, you should discuss the estimated cost of resolving your issue at your first consultation.

Prepare for your consultation

Before your meeting, read our Prepare for Your Consultation article, which features a series of valuable tips. The more prepared you are, the more productive your consultation will be.

Consider next steps

If more time is needed to resolve your case, your attorney will outline a series of next steps along with the related legal fees.
