LRS takes referrals from anywhere in Texas because these cases are typically heard in special administrative courts located in Austin.
Our Referral Process
When you contact LRS, our referral counselors discuss your situation with you to determine if we have a lawyer that has the experience you need for your legal issue. During the first meeting with the lawyer, you will evaluate the lawyer’s expertise and decide if they are a good fit for you. They will evaluate your case to see if they might be able to help you. They will discuss legal fees with you. When you hire an administrative law attorney, you sign an agreement that specifies the fees you would pay and outline the responsibilities of the attorney.
Let Us Help You
The first consultation with an attorney is free of charge for up to 30 minutes. The consultation may be subject to additional fees if it goes beyond 30 minutes. If you need more than one referral to find the right lawyer, we can help with that.
