How can I find a lawyer?

The Brooklyn Bar Association can assist you in finding an attorney.

Our Lawyer Referral Service can refer you to regular attorneys who either charge regular fees or contingency fees for their services. The Lawyer Referral Service can be reached at (718) 624-0843. These attorneys will have a consultation with you and if you hire them their fees are whatever you agree to with the attorney.

The Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project offers free legal advice and representation to people who cannot afford a lawyer. The Volunteer Lawyers Project, is the only program of our kind that operates borough-wide in Brooklyn, and the legal assistance they provide solves fundamental problems affecting people’s basic rights.
