Lawyer Referral Information Service

Need to hire a lawyer? If you think you need a lawyer, chances are you do. People often postpone getting legal help because they do not know a lawyer or are unsure of how to choose one.

The Nassau County Bar Association established the Lawyer Referral Information Service (LRIS) to provide trained personalized assistance to help you find the right lawyer for your legal issue.

There are more than 500 participating private practice attorneys on the panel who have experience in all areas of the law. All are in good standing with the New York State Bar Association. It is important that you seek competent legal assistance before your situation becomes a serious problem. DON’T DELAY!

For personalized, confidential assistance, call the Lawyer Referral Information Service at 516-747-4832.

Mortgage Foreclosure Legal Consultation Clinics

In 2008, the Nassau County Bar Association, in partnership with Nassau/Suffolk Law Services, the Nassau Regional Office of the Attorney General and the County of Nassau, became the first bar association in New York State to address the looming mortgage foreclosure crisis by launching its Mortgage Foreclosure Pro Bono Project, a program that provides free legal assistance to help Nassau homeowners stave off foreclosure on their homes.

Free clinics provided one-on-one attorney guidance, bankruptcy assistance, home loan modification assistance and information about the Volunteer Lawyers Project, providing free legal assistance to residents who meet income requirements. Clinics are scheduled monthly, 3-6 PM at the Nassau County Bar Association.

To reserve your spot at the next Mortgage Foreclosure Clinic, please call the Nassau County Bar Association at 516-747-4070.
