This Service is certified as a lawyer referral service as required by the State of Texas under Chapter 952, Occupations Code.
The Lawyer Referral & Information Service (LRIS) is a public service of the Tarrant County Bar Association, approved by the American Bar Association and contains hundreds of attorneys experienced in more than 40 areas of law.
When you call the LRIS, the staff will ask you to describe your problem and for your name, address and telephone number. You will be given the name and telephone number of an attorney near you who practices in your area of need. Any information you provide will be held in the strictest confidence. The LRIS counselors are not lawyers and therefore cannot give you legal advice, but will help you find the right resource for your situation. In the event that we do not offer lawyer referrals for your situation, we will provide you with contact information for a lawyer referral service in another area.
If you wish to email your request, you MUST include your name, address and telephone number for our internal use only. You can email your request as outlined above to LRIS@tarrantbar.org or you may use the form below.
What is the Cost?
If you are referred to an attorney through the lawyer referral service, the attorney will provide you with a half-hour consultation for $20. During your visit with the attorney, you and the attorney will discuss your matter and decide what further action to take, if any. There is no obligation for you to hire the attorney, nor is there any obligation on the part of the attorney to take your case. If the attorney agrees to represent you, the attorney will charge you at his or her regular rates.
8:30am – 4:30pm Monday-Friday
