Florida Bar Referral Service

The Florida Bar Lawyer Referral Service and local bar association lawyer referral services are designed to make it easy for consumer to contact a lawyer. Do you have a legal problem... and don't know an attorney? Call (800) 342-8011. It will place you in direct contact with The Florida Bar Lawyer Referral Service maintained as a public service by The Florida Bar. 

Your call will be answered by a lawyer referral staff member who will take your name, address and telephone number. You will be asked to state your problem briefly. Any information you give will be held in the strictest confidence.

Lawyer Referral Service staff will give you the name, address, and telephone number of an attorney in your geographic area who handles the type of case you describe.

After the first meeting between you and the lawyer, it is up to you to decide whether to authorize the lawyer to take action on your legal problem. 

Under The Florida Bar Lawyer Referral Service, lawyers charge clients $25 (local Bar-sponsored program charges range from $20 to $50) for the initial half-hour office consultation.

You will have up to one-half hour to discuss your problem with the attorney. You and the lawyer are under no obligation to go beyond the first consultation. The fee for any additional service should be arranged between you and the attorney during your initial meeting.
