What is the Lawyer Referral & Information Service?
Finding a lawyer can be a very difficult challenge for an individual who has never had to hire one. Of course, friends or work associates may be good sources for a referral. However, the State Bar of Nevada is also a resource when you need an attorney but are not sure where to turn. The Lawyer Referral & Information Service (“LRIS”) is a nonprofit public service and a service to the members of the State Bar of Nevada. Each year, LRIS assistants handle more than 28,000 calls from Nevada citizens and individuals residing outside of Nevada with various legal questions and problems. When appropriate, assistants refer callers to Nevada attorneys who are members of LRIS. Over 250 attorneys throughout the State of Nevada participate in the referral service. To be a member of LRIS, an attorney must be an active member in good standing with the State Bar of Nevada. The attorney-member must provide the State Bar with evidence of liability insurance. An attorney who is a member of LRIS may charge no more than $45 for an initial consultation. However, there is no consultation fee in a contingency fee case. If the client chooses to hire the attorney after the initial consultation, the attorney will negotiate the fee with the client.
Is there a charge for using the Lawyer Referral & Information Service?
No, there is no charge for LRIS. You can call LRIS at 702-382-0504, or toll-free within Nevada at 1-800-789-LRIS (5747).
How does LRIS operate?
The LRIS hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. When a caller contacts LRIS, an LRIS assistant will ask the caller a series of questions. The assistants are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice. The caller will be given the name and telephone number of an attorney who accepts cases in the area of law that addresses the problem. The referred caller and attorney will receive a confirmation of the referral in the mail. If the attorney is not able to assist the referred caller with the legal problem, the caller may contact LRIS again for another referral. A maximum of six referrals per legal issue may be requested.
