Find The Right Lawyer With LRIS and the NY Bar Association

Isn’t it nice when life is moving along smoothly and you don’t need to worry about having the services of a qualified lawyer? But what happens when suddenly you find yourself in a situation where you need proper representation? Do you even know the right questions to ask to find a lawyer who specializes in the type of case you’re facing? Thankfully, there’s a quick and easy way to get these questions answered, and you have the New York State Bar Association to thank for it. Every year there are thousands of new cases brought forward that involve people who have never been in court before, and the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) was launched to help these people find the right lawyer to serve them.


This service puts people in contact with attorneys who are in good legal standing with credentials that the New York State Bar Association has reviewed thoroughly. The service works by having seekers fill out a questionnaire describing their legal situation. It’s then reviewed by the State Bar staff to match the applicant with a nearby attorney. If their nearby community happens to have a local lawyer referral service then it will be referred to that group for matching with an attorney like Jeremy L. Goldstein.


Jeremy Goldstein is a partner at Jeremy L. Goldstein and associates, a firm that specializes in advising in matters related to executive compensation and corporate governance. Before he opened his own firm, Mr. Goldstein worked as a partner at a different firm, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz. He has a solid reputation and experience representing large corporations, including ALLTELL, AT&T Corp, Bank of America, and J.P. Morgan, just to name a few. Goldstein graduated from Harvard Law School and has subsequently provided commentary in their Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulations.
