lawyer referral and information service

The Lawyer Referral and Information Service is a public service of the Anne Arundel Bar Association. It is one of the many services extended to the community by the lawyers of the Anne Arundel Bar Association.

Many people delay in consulting with a lawyer until it is too late to avoid expensive legal problems. Often they delay because they are not certain whether they actually need a lawyer or because they don't know how to obtain legal services.

If you need a lawyer or you are involved in a situation in which it is important for you to know your legal rights, but you are confused about how to find a lawyer, the LAWYER REFERRAL AND INFORMATION SERVICE can help you via telephone or online.

How it Works

Call the Lawyer Referral Service at 410-280-6961.

A representative will ask a few questions to assist you in making an appointment with an attorney who is well-versed in the area of law needed. You will be referred to a lawyer in Anne Arundel County as close to you as possible. There is no fee to be referred for cases related to Social Security/Disability, Personal Injury, or Workman’s Compensation. For all other areas of law, an attorney will meet with you for up to 30 minutes for a fee of $35. When you meet with the lawyer, the first 30 minutes of consultation will be $35 and is paid to the lawyer at the time of the meeting. If further legal services are necessary, fee arrangements will be made by you and your lawyer. We do have lawyers on our panel who speak several foreign languages.

If you need this service, please make a request at the time of the referral.

Out-of-State Referrals
If you are not a resident of Maryland, your 30-minute consultation with your attorney will be conducted over the phone. Out-of-state referrals must be paid in advance via check or credit card.
