The Referral Process
  • Clients speak with an LRS staff member about their legal problem;
  • Clients receive a 30-minute consultation with a qualified local lawyer in the area of legal expertise they require. Consultations are immediately arranged around your schedule, usually within 24-48 hours.Clients also receive a free second 30-minute appointment with a different lawyer, if requested;
  • Clients pay a $41 administration fee to SCCBA's Lawyer Referral Service. All Attorneys in our Lawyer Referral Service charge NO FEE for first 30 minutes.
There is no obligation by you, nor the client, to continue the relationship beyond the first consultation. If the client's problem requires further legal services and they elect to hire you, you and the client will decide the fee to be charged.
