How It Works


Public users may request an instant referral through the SABA Lawyer Referral Service webpage - www.sabar.org/help. Our instant referral system uses a lawyer-designed question process to match each user to an attorney in the right area of law. Attorneys are selected on a rotational basis based on the practice areas that best present your practice. The user is provided the name of one attorney in the best-fit practice area and the attorney is provided with contact details and key intake information. The public user is instructed to contact the attorney to schedule an initial consultation to discuss their legal issue.

Here are some facts

One of the most credible and unique services offered by the San Antonio Bar Association is the Lawyer Referral Service. SABA-Lawyer Referral Service members earned over 1 million in case fees collected from the LRS Program referrals in 2018-2019 alone.
