    NEW!LRIS Panelist Incentive: Our Lawyer Referral and Information Service program is in DIRE need of panelists. Our LRIS program is one of the best in the nation and that is due to the ability to effectively screen and connect potential clients with attorneys. We take over 9,000 calls each year and connect over 4,000 clients with qualified attorneys. While we have a stellar group of panelists, calls to our lines have increased and we need YOU to help us make those connections – especially in the areas of: Consumer, Tenant (especially Evictions), Moderate Means Family Law, Elder Financial Abuse, and Debt Collection.
    As an incentive, if you join the panel as a NEW member, the LRIS Panel membership fee of $100 will be waived for 2024. If you are an existing LRIS member and you refer an attorney who then becomes a panelist, your membership will be refunded. Thank you in advance for helping us grow this already excellent program!
