Do you want to expand your client base? Join the LRS and receive referrals in your community

The Massachusetts Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service is one of the largest referral services of its kind, making more than 25,000 referrals each year to its 1,000 attorney members throughout the state. That makes joining the LRS a sound choice for MBA members. Your membership with the LRS not only helps the public, it also offers you the opportunity to expand your client base. We invite you to invest in public service and your professional future by joining. If you join after Feb. 1, your membership will continue to March 31, 2009, but your expanded client base will last for years.

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 $75 or $100, depending on how long you have been admitted to practice.

Over the past few years, the LRS has expanded its statewide marketing of the program with the development of radio campaigns, newly designed advertising in the Boston Yellow Book, Hispanic Yellow Pages, Exhibit A and on the MBTA trains and platforms. Additionally, the LRS will continue to advertise in most Verizon Yellow Page books, allowing you to receive referrals within your community.

To learn more about the LRS, call (617) 338-0556 or e-mail [e-mail LRS]. You can also access the LRS 2008-09 application via the MBA Web site by going to www.massbar.org, selecting “For Attorneys,” then “Resources & Services” and “Lawyer Referral Service.”
