If you’re facing criminal charges, finding the right criminal defense lawyer in Brooklyn can mean the difference between getting a fair trial and conviction.
The Lawyer Referral Service can help.
Besides your freedom, other aspects of your life are at stake too. For example, a conviction becomes part of your permanent record and can affect future employment opportunities, your right to vote, and for certain crimes, even your right to drive a car.
The Brooklyn Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service is Brooklyn’s oldest and largest attorney referral service, and is the only referral service in Brooklyn that has been certified by the American Bar Association.
We can refer you to an attorney in any of the five Boroughs of New York, as well as the neighboring Counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland, and Westchester.
We have over 150 prescreened lawyers with expertise in virtually all areas of the law. Each criminal defense lawyer on our panel must meet or exceed very high standards of experience and qualifications.
Do not leave your freedom to chance.

What Does It Cost?
There is a nominal $25 consultation fee for criminal defense cases which entitles you to up to one-half hour with the criminal law attorney to whom you were referred. The attorney will not charge you any additional fee during this first 30-minute meeting. This administrative fee is payable by cash or money order.
After the first meeting with the criminal defense attorney, you should discuss with the lawyer the cost of additional advice or representation. There are no further charges to you from the LRS and you are under no obligation to hire the criminal defense lawyer to whom you have been referred.
