How To Join Lawyer Referral
If you sign up as a panel member of the Baltimore County Lawyer Referral Service, you will receive referrals based on case type and geographical location. We advertise this program on our website, throughout the community and through other service agencies.
Shifts are available to panel members where they can screen calls in two-hour increments and take the case of their choice.
Current Year (July-June) Panel Registration Packet
Our referral year runs from July 1 - June 30. You can sign up at any point during the year and will need to reapply for every year that you would like to remain on Lawyer Referral.
