Disabilities Lawyer Referral Service

Disabilities Lawyer Referral Service

The Pennsylvania Bar Association Board of Governors approved the establishment of a lawyer referral service maintained by the Legal Services to Persons with Disabilities Committee to respond to inquiries from persons with disabilities seeking legal representation. The committee has established the Disabilities Lawyer Referral Service (DLRS). The purpose of the referral service is to match up lawyers with "accessible" offices, or those who are willing to meet at an accessible site, with potential disabled clients who have various types of legal needs, which are not limited to disability issues. The committee is accepting applications from lawyers licensed in Pennsylvania to be a part of the referral service. For more information, please click on the following item: Access to Justice

The committee is committed to full access to the legal system for persons with disabilities. Its concerns apply to all proceedings in which persons deal with or appear before their government, including not only courtroom proceedings but also district justice hearings, administrative proceedings before boards and commissions at the federal, state or local levels and all sorts of legislative hearings. If you or your clients have experienced or are experiencing physical or other barriers to full participation in the legal process, contact the committee through Louann Bell, (800) 932-0311, ext. 2276. The committee wishes to document difficulties and work with the entities involved in order to ameliorate or resolve accessibility problems. For further information, contact Committee Debra K. Wallet at (717) 737-1300.
