Alabama State Bar Lawyer Referral Service
The Alabama Bar Association established a Lawyer Referral Service to help individuals and businesses find a qualified attorney. Participating attorneys serve on various panels based on their practice area.
When you call the Lawyer Referral Service you will discuss your case briefly with a trained staff person in a confidential interview. When appropriate, the staff person will refer you to a local attorney with experience in the needed legal field.
After you receive a referral, you can then contact the attorney's office to schedule the consultation. The attorneys that participate in the service agree not to charge more than $50 for a 30 minute consultation. During the consultation, you can discuss your legal concerns with the attorney and the attorney fees needed for additional representation.
