About Lawyer Referal Service of Central Texas
The Lawyer Referral Service of Central Texas (LRS) was created in 1966 in response to requests for assistance in obtaining appropriate legal counsel. The program was designed to assist persons who are able to pay normal attorney fees but whose ability to locate legal representation is frustrated by a lack of experience with the legal system, a lack of information about the type of services needed, or a fear of the potential costs of seeing a lawyer. LRS encourages meeting with a lawyer by offering, in most cases, up to thirty minutes in the lawyer’s office for only $20.
The second prong of the LRS program is to assist lawyers build their practices by referring screened and qualified potential clients. LRS responds to approximately 25,000 contacts from the public each year and makes around 9,000 referrals to participating lawyers.
