The Knoxville Bar Association Lawyer Referral & Information Service (LRIS) was created as a public service while also serving as a referral resource for KBA members.
The LRIS receives nearly 7,000 calls each year from potential clients and averages nearly 3,000 referrals. Panel members have generated over $4.3 million in attorney fees in the last five fiscal years. Potential clients who contact the LRIS are informed that participating attorneys provide a phone or office consultation at no charge, but that panel members independently set their own fees.
LRIS currently has 76 panel member attorneys in 26 practice areas. The average LRIS member has practiced for 20 years. We have attorneys in their first few years of practice all the way to 52 years in practice.
