Calling All Lawyers: Panel Members Needed

The Virginia State Bar’s lawyer referral service (VLRS) received close to 18,000 calls in a recent year, and most potential clients are referred to a lawyer in their geographic region based on the area of law their issue concerns. But some regions and topics are underserved. The VLRS has compiled a list of locations and areas of law where callers and users could not be matched with lawyers during the 2017 calendar year.

Last week, the VLRS launched a new online portal that allows access to the VLRS 24/7. 

Interested lawyers can fill out an application to become a VLRS panel member here.
