Find an Attorney

Lawyer Referral & Information Service (“LRIS”)

Legal issues can be complicated.
Let us help you find the right lawyer.

The Lawyer Referral & Information Service (LRIS) of the Toledo Bar Association (TBA) has been connecting people in northwest Ohio with attorneys in the area since 1990. We are a trusted resource in the community. We will assess your needs and provide a referral to an attorney in your area who can best assist you. 

How can I get a referral?
Simply fill out the questionnaire and an email providing your referral information will be sent your way. Be sure to check your junk and/or spam inboxes. Or if you prefer, you can call and speak with an intake specialist who can provide a referral. Our intake specialists are experienced and trained to find the right attorney for your legal matter. Please note, our specialist receives many inquiries every day and will get back to you promptly and in the order that your request was received.

What should I expect when receiving a referral?

Once the LRIS has identified an attorney for your needs, you will be provided with that attorney’s name and phone number. It will be your responsibility to contact the attorney to schedule your initial one hour in office consultation. There is often a consultation fee up to $150, which you will need to pay the attorney when you meet with them.

*There is no consultation fee for certain cases, including bankruptcy, personal injury, malpractice, unemployment compensation, and other benefits cases. You will be informed at the time of the referral if your type of case has no consultation fee.
