Featured member benefit: Lawyer Referral Service

Looking to expand your client base? Join the MBA's Lawyer Referral Service and receive referrals in your community

The MBA's Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) is one of the largest referral services of its kind, making more than 21,000 referrals each year to its 1,000 attorney members throughout the state. Joining the LRS offers you the opportunity to both expand your client base and help the general public. We invite you to join now, and invest in your professional future.

As an MBA member, you can participate in this program by completing a separate application form which can be sent to you upon request. Additionally, in order to join the LRS you must be in good standing with the Board of Bar Overseers and provide a proof of insurance by forwarding a Certificate of Insurance from your current professional liability insurance carrier. The cost of joining the LRS is either $100 or $150 depending on how long you have been admitted to practice. Just one LRS referral can cover the cost of your annual membership in both the MBA and the LRS.

Over the past few years, the LRS has expanded its statewide marketing to include:

  • Development of radio campaigns;
  • Marketing on the Internet via Google;
  • Newly designed advertising in the Metro Newspaper;
  • MBTA trains, buses and subway platforms.

LRS will continue to advertise in the Verizon Yellow Page books, allowing you to receive referrals within your community.

To learn more about the LRS, call (617) 338-0556 or contact us via e-mail. You can also access the LRS 2008-09 application via the MBA Web site.
