Lawyer Referral & Information Service 

The Atlanta Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) program has served the public since 1955. We are proud of our track record in referring over 12,000 citizens last year to qualified attorneys who reflect legal professionalism, integrity and a commitment to service.

Since September, 2004, LRIS attorneys’ have generate over $3,000,000 in fees, closed over 2,000 cases, and have consulted with thousands of Atlanta citizens.

Do you need a lawyer?

Looking for the right lawyer can sometimes be frustrating, time-consuming and intimidating.  Many people try to handle difficult situations without legal help because they don’t know where to turn. That’s why the Atlanta Bar Association established the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) in 1955.  LRIS is a non-profit public service entity of the Atlanta Bar Association.  LRIS is proud of its track record in helping the public find the right attorney who reflects legal professionalism, integrity and a commitment to service. 

How the Service works


1)   Call us at 404-521-0777 or complete an online referral request.

2)   Our referral staff will need a brief description of your legal issue, your name, address and phone number (all information is confidential).

3)   We will provide you with the name and phone number of a qualified lawyer who handles your type of problem and who is located, if applicable, in the geographic area convenient to you.

4)   Your initial half-hour consultation with the attorney will cost no more than $45. There is no fee for many areas of law.

5)   If further legal service is required, the fee arrangements are made between you and the attorney.
