Join the Brooklyn Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service


Grow Your Practice through Client Referrals

The BBA Lawyer Referral Service (BBA LRS) is Brooklyn’s oldest and largest attorney referral service, and is the only referral service in Brooklyn that has been certified by the American Bar Association.

The BBA LRS provides member attorneys with an opportunity to build their law practices through client referrals. The service benefits the public by helping callers quickly find a qualified attorney in the area of law in which they need help.

Clients with legal issues make contact with the BBA LRS every day and lawyers are needed in all areas of law.


How the LRS Works

BBA LRS referral counselors screen all incoming calls to the service. The counselor asks about the nature of the legal matter and establishes the appropriate area of law and the person’s location. Those interested in scheduling a consultation with an attorney pay a fee of $25 for the consultation (the fee is waived for workers’ compensation, personal injury and Social Security matters).
