About Us


We can help.

The KBA Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) connects you with a qualified attorney who can meet your legal needs with skill and care. The LRIS offers experience, integrity, and a commitment to public service.

Our staff is passionate about connecting you with the services you need and mindful of your privacy. We interview you about your legal issue to determine what area, or areas, of law you need assistance with. Some examples of our attorneys’ practice areas include administrative law, adoption, banking law, bankruptcy, business law, civil litigation, collections, conservatorship/guardianship, construction law, consumer, corporate, criminal law, cyber/information privacy, elder law, employee benefits, employment law, entertainment & sports, environmental law, family law, intellectual property, juvenile, labor, patent law, personal injury, probate & trust administration, professional malpractice, real estate law, social security, taxation, wills & estate planning, and workers’ compensation.

The LRIS is not simply a lawyer directory. The participating attorneys are members of the bar in good standing, have no public disciplinary actions taken against them, and carry liability insurance. We make referrals to attorneys based on the fields they practice on a regular basis. For certain fields of practice, we require documentation of experience and specific case work. A referral through the KBA Lawyer Referral & Information Service is more than just a name.
