Learn More About the Lawyer Referral Service

Dear Section Member,

The State Bar of Michigan Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) currently receives more than 500 calls each week from people looking for lawyers. Many of these are unable to find a match because there are not enough attorneys in some geographic areas or in some practice areas. For more than a year the State Bar has been revising and improving the LRS. The resulting system produces far better matches for attorneys and consumers alike. The State Bar is ready to begin a significant marketing initiative to consumers and we need more lawyers to participate as panel members.

Here are few examples of concrete improvements: Better matches mean a higher likelihood of securing paying clients than ever before. The new online platform now automates much of the tracking and reporting that attorneys had to do in the past. In addition to traditional cases, LRS has added Modest Means panels for family law and bankruptcy, and opportunities for attorneys to market Limited Scope practice.

Thank you very much. We're very excited about this opportunity for lawyers to expand their practices while enhancing access to quality legal services throughout Michigan.
