MCBA Lawyer Referral Service 

Our Lawyer Referral Service staff is working from home due
to COVID-19. Please fill out an online request (link in No. 1 below)
or call 602-257-4434 for assistance.


About the Service:

The Lawyer Referral Service was established in 1964 by the Maricopa County Bar Association to help match clients with attorneys that suit their needs. Our many years of experience mean our friendly, knowledgeable staff can help you find the help you are looking for.  

The attorneys in the network are pre-screened for experience in a wide range of areas of law.

How the Service Works 


Find an Attorney

To find an attorney, fill out an online request form or call (602) 257-4434 to speak with someone from our friendly staff about the nature of your problem.

We will ask you questions and work with you to find a professional who can assist you in a thorough and concise manner.


Our Fee

After we find a match you'll pay a one-time, non-refundable $40.00 fee. If the attorney does not meet or speak with you personally, then you will be referred to a second attorney.

Each referral is for one separate legal matter. If you have multiple issues, you may need to pay different referral fees, as most attorneys only specialize in certain areas of law.



Once your payment has been received, the representative will provide the information necessary for you to schedule your appointment.

After setting up your appointment you will meet or speak with the attorney to assess your situation and discuss legal advice.



Near the end of the consultation, the attorney will let you know that your free time is almost over; any services past that point are between you and the attorney. You can decide if you wish to hire the attorney, but you are not required to hire him or her.

We look forward to helping you find the experienced and knowledgeable attorney to assist you in your legal needs.

What We Do. We will help you find the lawyer who best fits your needs.

 We put you in touch with an attorney to schedule up to a 30-minute legal consultation upon payment of a small non-refundable $40 administrative fee. There is no fee for select personal injury claims, workers' comp or social security disability (excluding overpayment cases). 

We refer you to a licensed and insured attorney, not a paralegal or document preparer. Many of our panel attorneys have decades of experience. 

Your lawyer will be an experienced professional in good standing with the State Bar of Arizona and the Maricopa County Bar Association. 

We can try to find an attorney near your home or work, and the consultation can occur in person or over the phone. 

We do not guarantee that the attorney will take your case, but you will get to speak with them personally for up to 30 minutes. 

Our panel attorneys must speak with you directly. They cannot pass you off to a paralegal or any other person for the consultation. 

We ask our attorneys to schedule an appointment for you within 24 to 48 hours whenever possible.
