Lawyer Referral Service - Clients


Do You Need a Lancaster Lawyer? Are you doing Google searches? Looking in the phone book?

We have a better option.

The Lawyer Referral Service matches people with Lancaster Bar Association Member Attorneys, based on the kinds of legal problems and the lawyers’ experience.  We match people getting divorces with family law lawyers, and people facing charges with criminal defense lawyers. 

Here’s how it works:

  • The service is phone-only.  There are no lawyers at the Lancaster Bar Association building.
  • Phone hours: 9am-Noon, Monday through Friday
  • Phone number: 717-393-0737.  Choose the "Lawyer Referral Service" option in the menu.  Si, hablamos Espanol! 
  • We will talk with you about your legal problem.   If we can refer the case to a lawyer who has experience with the kind of problem you have, we will make the referral. 

Here’s what it costs:

  • $50.00 is the cost of the referral and a 30-minute consult with the lawyer we refer you to.
  • After that, you work out legal fees directly with the lawyer. 

Can’t afford a lawyer?  Don’t worry, there may still be options.  See the menu on the left for civil and criminal legal aid options, and for self-help resources.
