We can help
The Lawyer Referral & Information Service (LRIS) is a FREE referral service for anyone that has helped people navigate through the legal process to ensure that all in the community have access to justice.
Our most successful community program is the Lawyer Referral Information & Service (LRIS). The LRIS is a FREE over the phone referral service for anyone that has a legal question or is seeking to obtain legal counsel.
How it works
A trained interviewer assess the caller’s situation and determine the most appropriate way to proceed.
caller is then referred to either a private attorney, government agency, or community resource, depending on the nature of the legal problem.
If the caller is referred to an attorney, the first half hour consultation will cost no more than $20.
This is a free service. LRIS does not charge callers for information or referrals. All calls are treated confidentially.
There is no charge to receive a referral from us. The attorneys in our service are all private attorneys who set their own rates. Cost can be discussed with the attorney after the referral is made.
The LRIS has been in operation for over 60 years. We take over 13,000 calls annually to connect people with attorneys and community agencies in the greater Milwaukee area. We assist people everyday with their legal problems and help point them in the right direction.
