The Lawyer Referral and Information Service fields 5,000-6,000 calls per month and serves 246 counties across Texas. Each call is screened to make sure LRIS is sending qualified referrals to panel members. Panel members agree to provide all LRIS referred callers an initial consultation of 30 minutes for no more than $20, a fee which the lawyer keeps. After that, if you and the client agree to work together, your standard fees apply for the services(s) you provide. On any referral from LRIS that results in a case that generates attorney fees of $500 or more, 10% of the total fees are to be remitted back to LRIS. You must be a member in good standing of the State Bar of Texas, and all members of the LRIS must also carry professional liability insurance for a minimum of $100,000. LRIS does not include the counties of Bexar, Dallas, El Paso, Harris, Jefferson, Nueces, Tarrant, and Travis, as these counties are covered by local referral programs. Find out more about LRIS here.
