Comments Sought on Proposed Changes to Virginia Lawyer Referral Service Rules and Fee Structure

Following a 2017 review of the bar’s Virginia Lawyer Referral Service (VLRS) by the American Bar Association, the Special Committee on Lawyer Referral is proposing a number of changes to the service. 

The changes would add a Paragraph 23 to Part 6, § IV of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Virginia that codifies existing VLRS rules of service, adds to them, and, most significantly, changes the fee structure of the VLRS to a “percentage fee” program.

Read more about the changes and the opportunity for public comment here. Comments are due by July 27, 2018.
