Tennessee Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service
The Lawyer Referral Service provides a list of attorneys to assist the public in locating an attorney. Several city bar associations across the state operate such a service. Contact the Lawyer Referral Service in your area. Contact with this service puts you in touch with a pre-screened lawyer with whom you may schedule a 1/2 hour appointment for a $400 fee (instead of the lawyer’s normal hourly fee). This fee is waived for personal injury, medical malpractice, worker’s compensation, victim compensation, and social security disability. The date and time of the appointment will be scheduled during your initial call to the Lawyer Referral Service. The fee covers your first 30 minute consultation with the lawyer. After that time, if you wish to hire the lawyer, the two of you can discuss any additional fee. Scheduling an appointment with a lawyer through the Lawyer Referral Service will help you determine whether you need to hire a lawyer, the approximate cost for the services of the lawyer, and an estimate of approximately how long it will take to resolve your legal matter.
