The Lawyer Referral Service allows its members to take advantage of two powerful ways to leverage the ISBA's IllinoisLawyerFinder public directory and connect with clients.

Each month, lawyer referral service operators provide hundreds of referrals. See updates about how many phone referrals are made by the Lawyer Referral Service. In addition, both premium and basic LRS members will carry a special designation on their IllinoisLawyerFinder public profile page alerting potential clients that they carry liability insurance and are in good standing with the ARDC.
