The Lawyer Referral & Information Service is no longer in operation. Please check back in the coming weeks to view our new online service. 

Lawyer Referral & Information Service Membership

Operated under the direction of the BAMSL Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS) Committee, the LRIS refers more than 11,000 clients per year to attorneys on its panel. Membership may be sought by any attorney in the metropolitan St. Louis area who is admitted to practice in the state of Missouri, is in good standing with the State Bar ofMissouri, and agrees to abide by the the LRIS Rules of Procedures and Operation. 

More than $13 million in legal fees have been generated by LRIS referred cases since the LRIS was reorganized in 1993. The BAMSL LRIS program is operated in compliance with Missouri Supreme Court Rule 4-10.1 of the Rules Governing the Missouri Bar and the Judiciary and the ABA Model Rules for Lawyer Referral Services.

We are proud to have served the St. Louis community for more than 75 years and to be among the first Lawyer Referral Services which was ABA compliant.

For an application or answers to questions not included in the Rules and Participation Guidelines document listed below, please contact LRIS Director, Lael Richter Simon, at (314) 421-4134, ext. 3131 or
