The Lawyer Referral Service is on hiatus the week of August 15, 2022 — please call one of the agencies below if you are seeking legal aid.
At the Onondaga County Bar Association (OCBA) Lawyer Referral Service, you will be assisted by a Referral Specialist who will connect you with an attorney who is familiar with your type of legal issue. The attorney will provide a telephone consultation and further advise how the attorney will charge for his/her services. The lawyers are licensed and members in good standing with the OCBA. The LRS staff are NOT attorneys and cannot provide you with legal advice. The attorneys who participate in this service are private attorneys who charge regular rates as determined by them.
(The Onondaga County Bar Association provides referrals to licensed attorneys who are members of the Association through the Lawyer Referral Service. OCBA does not provide legal advice or counsel, nor does it assume responsibility for the provision of any legal services referenced on this website.)
