The Clearwater Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service helps individuals and businesses in North Pinellas County find a qualified attorney. The Lawyer Referral Service is managed by the Clearwater Bar Association as a public service. Its hours of operation are Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
When you call the Clearwater Lawyer Referral Service at 727-461-4880 a coordinator will take down your contact information including your name and address. During a confidential interview, the coordinator will ask you several questions about your legal problem.
The coordinator will then determine whether a referral to an attorney participating in the service is appropriate. If so, the coordinator will give you the name and phone number of an attorney. You can then call the attorney to make an appointment for an initial consultation.
In exchange for the referral, you must pay a $50 fee to the Lawyer Referral Service. The attorneys that participate in the service then agree to provide a thirty-minute consultation at no additional cost. During the consultation, you can talk with the attorney about their services they provide and the additional attorney fees needed.
The attorneys in the lawyer referral service managed by the Clearwater Bar Association are screened in advance to confirm their good standing with the Florida Bar. Attorneys are also required to show proof that they have professional liability insurance.
The attorneys that participate in the service practice in a wide variety of practice areas of the law including civil litigation, personal injury, medical malpractice, workers compensation, family law, business law, bankruptcy, probate, elder law, estate planning and criminal defense.
