Just because someone spends a lot of money on advertising doesn’t mean they’re a great attorney.

The Knoxville Bar Association’s “Find a Lawyer” program has been a trusted source for finding an attorney for over 60 years. Don’t just find a lawyer. Find the right lawyer. The KBA Lawyer Referral & Information Service (LRIS) was established in 1958 and its friendly and knowledgeable staff can match you with an attorney based on your legal needs. We refer to local attorneys who practice in 40+ areas of law and are admitted to practice in East Tennessee courts.

Last year our LRIS assisted over 3,000 people in matters covering all areas of law, such as car accidents, divorce, workplace injuries, debt problems, buying or selling a house, buying a business, intellectual property, collection, retirement planning, and criminal and traffic defense. We help people who do not know a lawyer to find one, in a way that’s far more personalized than a Google search. We also make referrals to appropriate government or social service agencies.
