A new attorney referral service has recently been unveiled in New York. The Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS), has made an online debut and is designed to match attorneys and clients based on specific criteria. The New York Bar Association (NYBA) previously provided this service only by telephone. The service is beneficial to both clients and attorneys. Clients benefit by saving time in having to interview multiple attorneys; this also saves clients the frustration of having to discuss potentially upsetting or sensitive information repeatedly. Attorneys benefit by having their potential clients pre-screened and are able to gain additional business in their specialization. Should a client wish to consult with the selected attorney, a small referral fee of $35 is paid however, this is sometimes waived depending on the case type.
Attorney Jeremy L. Goldstein is a partner of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, a boutique law firm specializing in corporate law. More specifically, their specialty is in corporate governance issues, and executive pay. Mr. Goldstein has handled many complex mergers and acquisitions for many well known corporations in the US. This isn’t his first partnership in a firm; he previously worked as a partner with Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. His educational background serves him well, as he has both an MBA and Law Degree from New York University.
Jeremy Goldstein has also contributed to NYU’s Jornal of Law as well as Harvard University in his specialization area(s). He makes time for charity work and serves in leadership roles at both the Make a Wish Foundation and a lesser known charity Fountain House. The latter organization helps those in the community with issues regarding mental illness. Mr. Goldstein has also won many awards over the years for his impressive work. He’s certainly an attorney who’s on top of his game and deserves top recognition.

New Yorkers have a convenient way of finding experienced lawyers in their community. The New York State Bar Association’s trusted Lawyer Referral and Information Service launched their new website for people in search of law services. Their services are available for 24 hours at www.nysbalris.legal.io. The new online portal is a joint venture with the Legal.io
Below is how the website works:
* A person in search of legislative services goes to the website and fills out a questionnaire describing in detail about their issue and their location.
*The State Bar staff review the filled questionnaire and match the client to a lawyer whose office resides in the same locality as the client.
*The State Bar forwards the request to the right county bar association.
* The use of this website gives free Referrals. If the person consults the lawyer whom they got a referral, there is a $35 consultation fee for the first 30-minutes. However, there are exceptions made if the matter revolves around social security, personal injury, military law, medical malpractice, worker’s compensation, or unemployment.
* After the thirty minutes consultation, he or she adds a fee agreeable by both the lawyer and the client.
New York State Bar Association is a 72000 member program and is the biggest voluntary state bar association in America.
