Jeremy Goldstein has been involved with many of the largest and most important business deals of the 21st century. Some of the transactions Jeremy Goldstein helped to facilitate include United Technologies buying out Goodrich. He also worked on Duke Energy and Progress Energy, and many other important cases. The Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business lists him as a leading executive compensation attorney.
However, Jeremy Goldstein wants everybody know about the Lawyer Reference and Information Service the New York State Bar Association set up to help people who need to find appropriate legal representation.
The New York Bar Association operates it as a telephone number too, but recently partnered with Legal.io to set up an online portal that’s available 24 hours a day.
When somebody goes to the website, they complete a questionnaire asking for their location and their legal problem.
Seventeen counties in the state of New York already have their own legal referral services. If somebody lives in one of those counties, their questionnaire is routed to the legal reference service of the county where they live.
For other people, a member of the state bar reviews the questionnaire. They determine what kind of lawyer you need, and which ones who practice that type of law live close to you or in your community.
The service itself is free. If you do go to the lawyer, they get $35 to give you a consultation for 30 minutes. If you decide to hire them, they’ll explain their fees and rates.
