Online Lawyer Referral Service

The Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) is operated as a public service of the Idaho State Bar. All LRS attorneys are members in good standing with the Idaho State Bar with no pending public disciplinary complaints and carry professional liability insurance. LRS attorneys have agreed to provide their clients with an initial up to a half hour consultation at no fee. The fee for a referral is $35 unless the cases are personal injury, medical malpractice or workers' compensation which receive a free referral. After the initial consultation, any further fees are to be negotiated between the lawyer and client. Not all Idaho State Bar attorneys are members of the LRS service.

If you need a referral to an attorney in another state, try the American Bar Association's Directory of Lawyer Referral Programs.

If you are not sure you need to hire an attorney, you can check our list of Other Legal Services.
