The Norfolk and Portsmouth Bar Association sponsors a Lawyer Referral Service. This nonprofit public service helps individuals and businesses find an attorney throughout Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth and Chesapeake. The LRS is also helpful to attorneys who need an referral for a case outside their own area of expertise.
When you call the service a referral specialist will talk with you about your legal issue during a confidential interview. After determining the type of attorney needed, the service will referral you to the attorney that has experience handling your type of legal issue. The service charges $35 for the referral.
You can then contact the attorney for the 30 minute consultation with no additional charge. During the consultation, the attorney can answer your questions and help you determine whether any additional services are needed. You can also discuss with the attorney the attorney fees that would be required to perform those additional services. Neither the attorney nor the client is under any obligation to continue the relationship after the initial consultation.
