The disarray in seeking legal redress in New York seems to be a problem of yesterday. People can now be easily connected with legal practitioners following the recent developments. The New York State Bar Association’s Trusted Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) established an online platform where individuals can be linked with attorneys.
Individuals will be connected with highly skilled and experienced attorneys whose credentials have been confirmed by the New York State Bar Association. The platform allows lawyers to scale delivery of legal services to a greater number of people at a low cost. It assists lawyers in creating a trusted, go-to online recourse for entities that are seeking to rely on the New York law. The move has received warm reception as it is viewed as providing a technological approach to legal issues. Having partnered with the Legal.io, a nationwide provider of referral and marketplace management technology for the legal industry, the platform has been a huge success.
In summary, this is how the platform works:
-Those seeking lawyers forward their legal issues and location in a questionnaire provided in the LRIS website.
-bar staff reviews the questionnaire and links the individual with suiting lawyer in the nearby location.
-The individual is referred to the county bar association if he/she lives in a county with the locally based lawyer referral services.
-Referral is free but an individual is charged a fee of $35 for the first 30 minutes if they talk to the attorney.
Some of the notable attorneys to benefit from these services include Jeremy Goldstein. Jeremy Goldstein is the founder of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC, a boutique law firm that specializes in advising CEOs, compensation committees, Management teams and corporations.
The Juris Doctorate holder from the New York University school of Law is highly informed on corporate governance and executive compensation issues; being among the leading executive compensation lawyers in America.
