Qualified Attorneys

There are over 500 attorneys in our directory practicing in 37 areas of law throughout San Diego County. All attorneys in the LRIS directory are required to meet certain criteria before being approved by the LRIS Committee. Prospective attorneys must provide letters of recommendation from either a judge or fellow attorneys, be in good standing with the State Bar of California and carry malpractice insurance.

In 2012, LRIS and its panel of attorneys assisted over 47,000 individuals with legal issues and helped them get their lives back on track. We can help you, so give us a call or use the online referral form to get started.

Confidential Referrals

We want you to know that we care about your privacy. When you contact LRIS we will ask you for the following information your name, address and telephone number and basic information about your legal issue.

We collect this information in order to refer you to the right attorney or to point you to a specific agency that may be able to assist you with your legal needs.

We will only discuss the information about your legal issue with a potential attorney's office. We will not give out any personal information to any other individuals or advertisers.

With over 60 years of experience referring San Diegans to attorneys, the Lawyer Referral and Information Service can help you find a qualified attorney specific to your legal needs. It is a short phone call or click away. Simply explain your situation to one of our trained bilingual counselors and you will be referred to a lawyer equipped to handle your legal matter. Your first 30 minute consultation is free of charge.
