How Does LRS Work?
A person needing legal assistance calls the LRS and describes to the intake administrator the nature of his or her problem. The intake staff is trained to determine whether legal or non-legal assistance best suits the needs of the caller. If legal assistance is required, the person is then referred to a lawyer experienced in the necessary field of law for a 30 minute initial consultation. If further legal services are needed, a fee arrangement is made directly between the person and the lawyer.
