Legal assistance offered

Have you ever considered using the Lawyer Referral Service (LRS)? If not, you’re missing out.

It is a free, no obligation service for both lawyers and the public who may need legal counsel. LRS’s function is to connect people in need of legal advice with lawyers whose legal interests match. LRS is staffed only by experienced live operators.

If you are unsure whether you need legal counsel, call LRS and speak to an operator confidentially about your situation, then receive a referral to a lawyer who could best help you.

With the information provided, you can contact the lawyer to set up a consultation of up to 30 minutes for $25 plus tax. During this initial consultation, you can determine if you want to work together and move forward with retaining the lawyer.

In the case that you are aware you do not need a lawyer but have general inquiries about BC laws, you can call Dial-A-Law or obtain the information online.

This free and automated service provides immediate access to information about a variety of legal issues from traffic tickets to criminal harassment and is offered in English, Chinese and Punjabi.< style=’ margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt;} >  For the Lawyer Referral Service, call 1-800-663-1919 if outside the Lower Mainland.< style=’ margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt;} >  For Dial-A-Law, visit www.dialalaw.org or call 1-800-565-5297 if outside the Lower Mainland.< style=’ margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt;} >
