What is Lawyer Referral Service?

The Hampden County Bar Association sponsors a Lawyer Referral & Information Service that refers members of the public to private attorneys. While our service does not employ attorneys or provide legal advice over the phone, we will provide you with the name of an attorney located in Hampden County who will handle your particular problem. A public service since 1976 the Hampden County Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral & Information Service is the only referral service in the Western Massachusetts area to be approved by the American Bar Association.  The LRIS matches people with possible legal issues with qualified attorneys. The attorneys are all members in good standing of the Hampden County Bar Association, have completed specific applications to participate and all carry malpractice insurance.
