BOOST YOUR BUSINESS WITH OUR REFERRALS
The HCBA's Lawyer Referral & Information Service is certified by the American Bar Association and backed by The Florida Bar. Our lawyers are committed to providing excellent service and must have experience in areas where they expect to receive referrals. Our attorneys are also open to providing legal assistance on a basis that takes into consideration the client’s ability to pay.
How does a lawyer qualify to be a member of the Lawyer Referral & Information Service?
LRIS attorneys must:
• be members in good standing of The Florida Bar.
• be engaged in the full-time practice of law.
• certify competency in any area of law in which clients will be accepted.
• agree to maintain a law office that is clearly identifiable to the public.
• provide proof of professional liability insurance.
What does it cost to be a member of the service?
HCBA members can join the service for a reduced rate of $160 per year. Non-members are also welcome to join for $310 per year. Attorneys must agree to provide a free 30-minute consultation with potential clients referred by the service. If an attorney accepts a case from LRIS, he or she must remit 15 percent of fees collected over $100.
How is the service promoted?
LRIS partners with the 13th Judicial Circuit and the Clerk of Court's Office to provide marketing material in prime locations. The service also partners with FOX 13 and The Tampa Tribune for a monthly segment and column featuring advice from our attorneys. LRIS also occasionally arranges community speaking engagements for members.
