Join the Lawyer Referral Service
Starting a new practice? Growing your client base? Looking for referral business? Join* the Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) and build your practice with referrals! in 2016, the LRS referred over 15,000 cases to its member attorneys!
Our Greatest Need
We refer cases in all fields of law: administrative, bankruptcy, civil rights, collections, commercial law, corporation, criminal law, deceptive trade practice/consumer, estate/probate, entertainment, family, immigration, international, labor, landlord/tenant, malpractice, military, oil & gas, patents & copyrights, personal injury, real estate, tax, internet/computer, environment, elder and securities. Currently, we have a great need for attorneys located on the south-side of San Antonio as well as a need for attorneys who practice one of the following: school law, civil rights, entertainment, internet/computer and environment law.
Attorneys who would benefit from pre-screened, referral cases should join LRS as a member. Attorneys who apply for LRS membership must be in good standing with the State Bar of Texas, show proof of insurance and pay the LRS membership fee. The LRS is funded by annual member dues of $200 and by a 10 percent fee paid by the member to the LRS from any fees the lawyer receives in any referred case. Once the completed application is submitted, the membership committee will review applications for approval.
Clients who contact LRS for a referral are informed that LRS attorneys are not free. LRS staff screen the case, and then clients are referred to LRS attorney members on a rotation basis according to the following criteria: area of law, geographical location and language preference. LRS attorneys are not obligated to accept any case referred to them by the service.
The number of calls to LRS increases every year—we benefit with more lawyers in all fields of law to handle the increasing volume of business. Join today; we would be pleased to refer a case to you!
