How do I get a referral to a lawyer?  Contact the Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) by filling out the Online Referral Form or calling 973.622.6204, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.


If you submit an Online Referral Formthe name, address and phone number of an experienced attorney will be emailed back to you as soon as possible and no later than one business day.  If you call, a trained staff member will interview you to determine the nature of your legal problem and then provide you with the name and telephone number of a qualified attorney. The referral is FREE and takes less than five (5) minutes.


You must contact the attorney to set-up the initial 30-minute consultation. The cost is only $25.  After speaking to the attorney, if you would like another referral, you may send another email or call the service again. Please note that the service is email, walk-in or "phone-in" only. The Bar Office does not have attorneys on staff and cannot answer legal questions.


What should I expect from the first meeting with the lawyer?  The initial consultation will help you determine whether or not you need the services of an attorney and if so, what the cost of those services would be.  You are under no obligation to hire the attorney. You are advised to take advantage of the reduced-rate initial consultation (no more than $25 for a 30-minute consultation) and to prepare your questions for the attorney in advance so that all of your concerns and questions are addressed.  If you decide to hire the attorney, also known as "retaining the attorney," you will be expected to pay their normal and customary fees.
