Lawyer Referral & Information Service

The State Bar of Wisconsin is a mandatory professional association for all attorneys who hold a Wisconsin law license. Some of our attorney members pay a small fee and choose to participate in our Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). LRIS is a public service to help identify the most appropriate resource for consumers with legal problems. Callers may be referred to an attorney or given information about contacting other community or government agencies that may be able to help them with their legal problem. We do not give legal advice. You may call and speak to one of our legal assistants for free. You may also obtain a referral to a lawyer who practices in the type of law you need from our online system after you answer some basic questions. This online service requires a non-refundable payment of $30.
