A Message from the Chair

Gregory A. Temming

The Cincinnati Bar Association established the Lawyer Referral Service to ensure that potential clients are provided referrals to experienced area attorneys that are competent to handle the legal matter for which the potential client is seeking counsel.  Upon contacting the Lawyer Referral Service, a staff member will interview the potential client and match them with an attorney that has experience in the appropriate area of the law.  The Lawyer Referral Service has established minimum qualifications for attorneys in each practice area to ensure the competent representation of referred clients.  After the Lawyer Referral Service has provided a referral, it is the potential client’s responsibility to contact that attorney and schedule an initial consultation.  Referral attorneys have agreed to provide a 30-minute phone consultation and will not charge more than $ 50.00.  Some referral attorneys provide free consultations.  It is the potential client’s decision whether or not to hire the referral attorney.
