For residents of New York, finding the right lawyer just got easier. The Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) just launched a new online service. This comes after the LRIS trained its staff to handle over 10,000 phones calls from the public.
According to Claire Gutekunst, President of the New York State Bar Association, many people need lawyers during times of stress. The LRIS offers a lower pressure way for New York residents to find legal help. With the new online service, residents can feel confident about being matched with qualified attorneys who are in good standing with the State Bar Association.
The online portal is available 24 hours a day at https://nybalris.legal.io. The New York State Bar Association partnered with Legal.io and created this service. Legal.io is one of the largest providers of marketplace and referral management services in the legal industry.
CEO of Legal.io, Tony Lai, commented on how excited and proud his company is to partner with one of the largest lawyer-focused associations in the world. It was a joy figuring out a way to redefine how lawyers reach a greater number of people at lower costs.
A lot of New York lawyers have praised the new service; especially lawyers with smaller firms. One lawyer, Jeremy Goldstein, sees the new service as a bonus. Jeremy Goldstein made a name for himself while working at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen, & Katz. After leaving, he founded his own firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates.
Since then, Jeremy Goldstein became a leader lawyer in matters of executive compensation and corporate governance. Jeremy Goldstein is also a frequent writer and public speakers on both legal matters. He’s even listed as one of the country’s top executive compensation lawyers by several publications.
