With the turn of a new year, reflections about one’s law practice circulate in the mind. Is my practice where I’d like it to be? Is there more I could be doing? Growing your clientele while giving back to the community is a great formula for a successful practice and one that is awaiting you at BASF’s San Francisco-Marin Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS).
Right now, membership is half-price. New members can join for only $60 for the first six months of the year. This gets you screened referrals in your chosen practice area, January to June. For referrals in more than one practice area, it’s just an additional $30 per area of law.
Annually, 50,000 individuals and businesses throughout the Bay Area contact the LRIS and are screened for services in seven different languages by a team of highly knowledgeable, trained, legal interviewers.
Serving San Francisco and Marin counties, LRIS refers callers to experienced, insured attorneys like you or to one of over 250 legal resources in either San Francisco or Marin counties. And for this limited time, you can join and receive referrals in both counties at no extra charge should you have an office on each side of the Golden Gate. Your Marin-based colleagues too can take advantage of the discounted pricing at this time of year and join for Marin county referrals.
Each individual you assist through LRIS, and every potential client you refer to LRIS, makes for another person whose rights are being protected, whose business is getting launched, or whose legal woes are being resolved. Whether you are in your first ten years of practice or have been a member of BASF for decades, there is a place for you in LRIS.
Providing more clients with quality legal services and supporting this public service program that benefits our community and BASF’s charitable programs, make for an easy pairing of New Year’s resolutions.
Accomplish all of this online by simply filling out the Attorney Application & Agreement, completing your area of practice application(s), and emailing the forms to Yvonne Ng, LRIS Membership Coordinator.
To pay by credit card, contact Yvonne directly at 415-782-8951.
