Online Lawyer Referral Services in Suffolk County MA
LegalMatch can quickly connect you to qualified attorneys in your area. There's no cost to use this online matching service and lawyers are available for all areas of law.
The MassachusettsLegalHelpCenter, Lawyer-Referral, and LegalMatch all provide Suffolk County with online lawyer referral services. The Massachusetts Legal Help Center claims to have lawyers in most areas of law but they state that if they do not contact you within 7 days then consider that they are unable to help you. If they are able to help you the agency claims that it will respond to your request within 24 to 48 hours.
Next is Lawyer-Referral which provides you with a free referral once you submit a description about your case. The agency claims that it can mostly help you find a criminal defense, personal injury, or real estate lawyer.
Both of these online referral agencies do not provide you with the cost information of a particular attorney or any background information on their experiences. Also, you are not given the opportunity to choose which attorney you would prefer to work with because you are only given the name and phone number of one attorney at a time. Furthermore, both of these online agencies, much like the private and public agencies that serve Suffolk County, fail to conduct a survey so that they may receive consumer feedback.
Only LegalMatch provides you with feedback from previous clients that have worked with a particular attorney that you may decide to work with. You are given background information about the attorneys that you are contacted by, along with how much your total case may cost and the hourly cost of working with the attorney. Plus, you do not have to contact an attorney; they contact you if they are interested in your case. This gives the client the control to pick and choose which attorney they prefer to work with. No other lawyer referral agency seems to provide a client with so much information. Also, LegalMatch has attorneys that practice in every area of law and the entire process of receiving a lawyer referral is free.
