Lawyer Referral
Lawyer Referral Service

The Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service provides over 1,300 referrals each year for members of the public seeking attorneys in most areas of law, including bankruptcy, business, collections, consumer, contract, criminal, elder law, employment law, family law, immigration, intellection property, military law, personal injury, real estate, tax, wills and estates. The program is sponsored as a public service for those who need an independent lawyer's advice and can pay a reasonable fee.

The goals of the LRS program are to foster good public relations between the Pierce County community and the Pierce County Bar, to simplify the difficult task of finding a lawyer for an immediate legal problem or for a long-term relationship, and to provide a source of revenue for the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association.

Ten percent of all fees generated through LRS referrals are paid to the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association to help fund its activities. Pierce County residents can call the Lawyer Referral Service, obtain a referral to an attorney qualified in the area closest to the nature of the matter at issue, and receive a half-hour conference with that lawyer for a (non-refundable) nominal fee of $35.
