|Lawyer Referral - El Paso County Bar Association||The Lawyer referral service is sponsored by the El Paso County Bar Association as a means to match attorneys with clients who are able to pay customary attorney’s fees.
**We do not provide pro bono or low cost referrals.**
The Lawyer Referral service matches insured, pre-screened attorneys with clients who seek their services. In most cases, we charge a $40 fee for a 30 minute consultation with a lawyer whose expertise and experience meet your needs. During that consultation, you may explain your case to the attorney and discuss how much the attorney would charge to represent you in the matter. Should you choose to retain the attorney’s services, all fees beyond the 30 minute consultation are at the attorney’s regular rates and retainers.
