After training their staff to handle more than 10,000 phone calls, the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) launched a new online portal. The new portal aims to lessen the stress level of New York residents seeking legal help. Lower stress levels are just the first benefit of the new online portal.
Additionally, this new service is more convenient and easier to use. Before, the LRIS used a telephone service that was only available during business hours. The new online portal is available 24 hours a day, but the old phone service will still be optional.
According to State Bar President Claire P. Gutekunst, every attorney referred by the LRIS is in good legal standing with the State Bar. Their credentials are up to par with what the State Bar requires. When someone is matched with one of the lawyers, they should feel confident in the abilities of that lawyer.
Also, the new online service is beneficial to the lawyers themselves. For lawyers working at smaller firms, the service is a great way to find new clients. Elena Jaffe Tastensen, a Saratoga Springs attorney, has used the LRIS to add to her client list for over 10 years.
