What is the Lawyer Referral Service?
The Lawyer Referral Service is designed to assist the public of West Virginia in locating lawyers that are currently taking referrals in specific practice areas. These lawyers are not certified in any specific practices that are honored by the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals but they may have experience or interest in that specific area of practice.
How the process works?
1. Determine what practice area you need an attorney in be searching by a keyword or browsing practice areas.
2. Search for an attorney with the desired practice area and your zip code.
3. Contact the attorney and mention that you found them through the WV State Bar Lawyer Referral Service. The attorney may agree to see you as a client for an initial consultation for a fee of no more than $25 for the first 30 minutes of the consultation.
What if i need more than a 30 minute consultation?
If you need further legal services, there will be additional attorney’s fees that you and your attorney will agree upon before you proceed. Be sure to ask for a fee agreement in writing if you wish to continue legal services.
How much will I be charged?
You will be charged an initial consultation fee of 25$ for the first 30 minutes of meeting with your referred attorney.
Can you recommend a specific attorney?
We cannot give you specific personal preferences. All of the attorneys listed in this service are good standing active members of the WV State Bar.
