For Lawyers: Join AABANY’s Award-Winning Legal Referral and Information Service

AABANY’s award-winning Legal Referral and Information Service (LRIS) invites experienced practitioners to join its panel of lawyers. Members of AABANY’s LRIS panel receive carefully pre-screened referrals from experienced Intake Coordinators, pre-approval of referrals, easy-to-use online reporting tools and a robust marketing program that has generated thousands of inquiries since its inception.

Joining AABANY’s LRIS provides an exceptionally easy, cost-effective way of building or expanding your practice. AABANY’s LRIS promotes its program through the local Chinese newspapers and advertises online through a highly popular and effective search engine optimization service. Additionally, given its heightened visibility in the community, its ABA-recognized performance and through AABANY’s many other award-winning activities, AABANY’s LRIS receives a majority of its referrals and inquiries from state, local, and federal elected officials, judges, government agencies, community organizations and word of mouth, most of which would ordinarily exceed any firm’s own marketing budget.

By joining AABANY’s LRIS, you provide an invaluable service to the many people in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community who have limited knowledge of American legal procedures and have pressing legal issues for which they – often desperately – need to retain a lawyer for legal advice and representation. Since 2020, AABANY’s LRIS has received inquiries everyday from throughout the New York City metropolitan region, as well as inquiries from virtually every state throughout the United States and from Asia.

AABANY’s LRIS is seeking lawyers experienced in all fields of law, and especially encourages lawyers to join who practice in trusts & estates, family law, civil rights, consumer law, criminal law, landlord-tenant law and matrimonial law. AABANY’s LRIS provides an invaluable service to the AAPI community of which you and your firm will be proud to be a part.
