Your local Attorney Referral Service can be called upon when you have to use the services of a lawyer. You may not know which attorneys are available in your area and that are qualified to represent you in court or to handle legal matters for you. You may already know that law is practiced under specialties with some attorneys having more experience or more qualifications due to educational degrees to practice in certain areas of law. What you might need to know is which attorneys are referred by your local bar association who usually provide a list of attorneys and their specialties to your local Attorney Referral Service. The list of qualified attorneys are given free of charge to inquiries and a nominal fee is usually charged if you desire the Attorney Referral Service to make an appointment for you with an attorney.
