The Purpose of LRS is Two-Fold
First, we provide an access point for those in our community looking for legal help.
Second, we assist you in building your practice by providing pre-screened referrals.
Our staff screens all who contact LRS to determine their legal need and their ability to pay legal fees.
The LRS target market is the middle-income legal consumer who can afford legal fees. Although LRS provides some modest means programs, this is not considered a pro bono or reduced fee program.
LRS also acts as a clearinghouse. The staff has an extensive list of community resources that it uses to assist those who may not need a lawyer or those who may not be able to afford a lawyer.
The easiest way to learn more about LRS is to review the LRS Rules of Operation. Those rules cover how referrals are made, how payments are made to LRS, and tracking LRS referrals.
If you have questions, please contact the LRS office.
