How does the Kentucky Lawyer Referral Service assist the general public with legal matters?
The Kentucky Lawyer Referral Service (KLRS), a public service sponsored by the Louisville Bar Association, refers callers to attorneys in their geographical area who are qualified to handle their specific legal problems.

What geographic area does the service focus on?
KLRS' primary service area is Breckenridge, Bullitt, Hardin, Henry, Jefferson, Larue, Meade, Nelson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble Counties in Kentucky and Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Jefferson, Scott, and Washington counties in Indiana.

What areas of law are represented?
Attorneys are available in all areas of law including divorce, bankruptcy, labor law, real estate and worker's compensation.

How are referrals made?
Referrals are made by a KLRS assistant through a series of questions to determine the nature of the caller's legal matter. Once referred, the caller must contact that attorney for further assistance.

Are free (pro bono) attorneys available?
Pro bono attorneys are not available. However, reduced-fee attorneys are available to those who qualify. If a caller requests a reduced-fee attorney, the KLRS assistant will ask a series of questions regarding the caller's ability to pay for legal services. For those who qualify, reduced-fee attorneys are available for most areas of law.

What is the arrangement with the attorney?
KLRS attorneys agree to give an initial consultation up to 30 minutes for free. Additional fees should be discussed with the referred attorney.

What if the matter cannot be addressed by an attorney?
If the caller may be better served by a social service or government agency rather than an attorney, the KLRS assistant may recommend that the caller contact the appropriate organization or agency.
