The New York State Bar Association is one of the largest associations of lawyers in the world. Founded in 1876, it is now staffed by 72,000 members. It’s also the largest voluntary state bar association in the United States. It’s safe to say that the New York State Bar Association is the most advanced lawyer association in the country.
A part of the New State Bar is the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). The LRIS’s primary mission is helping New York residents get in touch with qualified, practicing lawyers in or near their community. Last year, the LRIS trained its staff to handle more than 10,000 phones calls a month.
Additionally, the LRIS launched a new online portal. The new online service is at https://nysbalris.legal.io and is available 24 hours a day. This new service aims to alleviate pressure when searching for a lawyer. Facts show that people tend to seek legal help during times of stress. If preferred, the phone service is still an option.
The new online service works nearly the same as calling the LRIS. First, a confidential questionnaire describing the legal matter gets filled out. Next, a State Bar staff member matches the questionnaire with a local, practicing attorney.
One attorney that high-profile residents may get matched with is Jeremy Goldstein. Jeremy Goldstein is a successful executive compensation and corporate governance lawyer practicing at his boutique law firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates. He’s well qualified and handles many of his firm’s largest cases.
Jeremy Goldstein has three university degrees from three universities: the New York University School of Law, the University of Chicago, and Cornell University. Mr. Goldstein also writes and speaks on matters involving corporate governance and executive compensation.
