Jeremy Goldstein Makes himself Available for Lawyer Referral and Information Service
Jeremy Goldstein, a prominent attorney based in New York State, decided to collaborate with the online service of Lawyer Referral and Information Service or LRIS of the New York State Bar Association. The online service helps people to reach out to expert lawyers in their community with greater convenience. The online portal at https://nysbalris.legal.io/ provides 24 × 7 services to the people by ensuring confidentiality. People can also utilize the LRIS telephone service if required.
Claire P. Gutekunst, the New York State Bar President, confirmed that people are sometimes in need of urgent legal assistance, especially at the time of stress, and the new system would help such people to relax. Additionally, people can be more confident that they would get expert attorneys, whose credentials are reviewed by the Bar Association. The association collaborated with Legal.io, a legal technology firm, to develop the new online platform. Jeremy Goldstein thinks that the online technology platform would ensure legal services at a reduced rate to a large number of people and help them to access the state legal systems from across the world.
Any individual can access the portal and describe their legal issues and location along with filling a secret questionnaire. One of the Bar Association staff will review the details and forward it to the corresponding county bar association. If the individual is from any of the 17 counties that have exclusive local lawyer referral service, it will be forwarded to the appropriate bar association. Though the referrals are free, the initial consultation is charged at $35 for the first 30 minutes, with exceptions are given for issues related to medical malpractice, social security, personal injury, and more. The individual will have the freedom to continue with the lawyer or move to other lawyers after the initial consultation. It should be noted that the subsequent consultations are charged according to fee agreed by the lawyer and the individual.
