For more than forty years, the Westchester County Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) has been referring thousands of clients annually to LRS attorneys in Westchester.  Each year, tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees are generated through our service.

How Our Service Works:

A prospective client calls, or comes into the LRS office, and explains the nature of his or her problem. The client is screened and subsequently referred to an attorney based upon the attorney's area of legal concentration, status on the rotation list, and the client's geographic preference.

The participating attorney agrees to grant the LRS client an initial 30 minute consultation for a fee of $40. If further legal work is needed after the initial consultation, the attorney and client must agree to an arrangement at a mutually acceptable cost. The LRS will send the participating attorney a client referral form for each client referred. This form must be completed and returned to the LRS whether or not the client keeps the appointment, retains the attorney or just meets for the consultation only. Failure to submit accurate and timely reports will disqualify the participating attorney.

  • The first one-half hour consultation fee of $40 will be paid by the referred client directly to the attorney.
  • The first $500 of any aggregate fee received by the attorney on a referred matter shall be retained by the attorney; the attorney is to remit to the Lawyer Referral Service 15% of the excess over $500 of the aggregate fee received on a matter.
