Lawyer Referral Program
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.
To become a Lawyer Referral panel member, you must be a member of the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association in good standing, and you must complete a LRS application. The LRS application requires members to carry a minimum of $100,000 per occurrence/$300,000 aggregate per year professional E & O insurance coverage. Attorneys can join our 115 panel members today by calling 253 383-3432.
