A Message from the Chair

William F. Oswall, Jr.

"It is the Cincinnati Bar Association's foundational belief that everyone should have equal access to the justice system, regardless of their personal or economic situation. To aid in these efforts, the CBA Lawyer Referral Service connects potential clients with attorneys. The lawyer referral service staff will interview you and, if you have a legal problem, will match you with a lawyer who is experienced in the appropriate area of law. After you have the name and number of an attorney, you will set up an initial consultation. Here, you can explain your situation and ask questions that will help you decide whether you want to hire the lawyer. The CBA LRS guarantees initial consultations will cost no more than $50."
