Find a Lawyer

Do you need a lawyer?

Free legal consultation with trusted Knoxville lawyers, serving multiple counties in East Tennessee.

The Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) program can help you find a private attorney who has experience with your particular type of legal problem. The KBA Lawyer Referral & Information Service (LRIS) staff can match you with the right attorney to help you with your legal needs.

  • Have you been injured?
  •  Are you having trouble with an employment matter?
  • Were you served with an eviction notice?

Legal problems can be confusing when you do not know where to turn for help.

Whether you need a lawyer, a consumer or public service group, or a government agency, we’re here to help you find the service that’s right for you. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff can assist you in finding the help you need. The referral and a brief initial consultation with your lawyer are absolutely FREE.

What We Do
  • We will help you find the lawyer who best fits your needs.
  • We put you in touch with an attorney to schedule a FREE legal consultation of up to 30 minutes.
  • Your lawyer will be an experienced professional in good standing with the state Board of Professional Responsibility and the Knoxville Bar Association.
  • We ask our attorneys to schedule an appointment for you within 24 to 48 hours whenever possible.
  • We can try to find an attorney near your home or work, and the consultation can occur in person or over the phone.
  • We do not guarantee that the attorney will take your case, but you will get to speak with them personally for up to 30 minutes.
  • Our panel attorneys must speak with you directly. They cannot pass you off to a paralegal or any other person for the consultation.
How It Works

Fill out our online request form or call (865) 522-7501 to talk to our LRIS staff about the nature of your problem. When you request a lawyer from us, we want you to know that we care about and protect your privacy. When you request a lawyer referral, we need to have the following: basic information about your legal matter (which includes information about the opposing business or individual) and your full name, address, and telephone number. This information will be shared with the referred attorney only. The consultation will assist you in determining whether you need to hire a lawyer, the approximate cost for legal services, and an estimate of the resolution time. Once you have had your initial consultation, should you decide to retain the attorney, you will be expected to pay the attorney their normal and customary fees. Any services past the initial consultation are between you and the attorney. You and the attorney can decide if you wish to proceed with representation. You are not required to hire that attorney, and the attorney can decide not to take your case.
