The Baltimore County Bar Association Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) is a non-profit public service project of the Baltimore County Bar Association. The goal of LRIS is to match qualified lawyers to clients with specific needs, and also to provide the client with a consultation for a nominal fee. LRIS maintains a panel of attorneys with experience in specific areas of the law (listed below).

- You will be interviewed over the phone by a lawyer to determine the nature of the problem.
- If necessary, you will be referred to an attorney in your geographic area who has experience with your type of legal problem.
- A nominal fee ($35.00) will be charged for a thirty-minute consultation with the lawyer.
- If further legal service is required, fee arrangements will be made between you and your lawyer.
