Legal matters are inevitable, and you will always find yourself in a desperate situation that may require the intervention of a robust and intelligent lawyer. Finding one who can sufficiently and satisfactorily fight for your interests is always a hustle. Cognizant of this challenge and taking advantage of the vast and innovative digital world, most legal firms have found it crucial to extend their services to online platforms.
The New York State Bar Association in partnership with legal I.O. have developed an online platform to enable lawyers to deliver services to more people at an affordable price while at the same time creating a trusted and reliable business for customers relying on New York law all over the world.
An individual in need of legal assistance fills in a questionnaire on the website https://nysbalris.legal.io stating the kind of support they require and their geographical location. The state bar will then assess the application and refer the individual to an attorney who has an office nearby. The referrals are free, but the client pays $35 for the first thirty minutes of consultation. The customer has no obligation to retain the lawyer after the first meeting, and further fees are agreed between the client and the attorney.
