Broome County Bar Association

The Broome County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service is designed to provide beginning legal assistance to those who have legal questions or concerns. For a fee of $35.00, payable to the Broome County Bar Association, we will refer you to an attorney whose area of concentration in law matches your area of need. The attorney will grant you a 30-minute consultation at no charge. They will answer any legal questions you have, and give you their best guidance regarding your concern.

If you would like to be referred to an attorney, we accept cash, check or money orders made payable to the Broome County Bar Association. We accept walk-in payments between the hours of 2-5pm, or you can mail your payment to the Broome County Bar Association, 53 Chenango Street, Suite 201, Binghamton, NY 13901. Along with your payment, we will need your name, address and phone number and the area of law in which you need assistance (by using our downloadable form) so that we can direct your concern to the proper attorney. If you are unsure what area of law your concern falls into, please phone (607) 723-6331 between 9am and 5pm Monday - Friday.

Upon receipt of your payment, a referral will be made, and we will provide you with receipt of payment and the attorney's name, address, firm and phone number. You will need to contact the attorney to schedule your consultation. Please let them know you have been referred by the Lawyer Referral Service and are to receive a half-hour free consultation. You may request an office consultation or a phone consultation. Office consultations will be scheduled within 1-5 days from the date of the referral. Phone consultations can sometime occur sooner, however, you will need to schedule the time of the phone consultation, and agree to pay any long distance charges.

If you would like more information or need to speak to someone directly regarding your concern, please call during our regular hours of 1-5pm. The number to reach the Lawyer's Referral Service and the Broome County Bar Association is (607) 723-6331 or (607) 724-7085 (fax). Please keep in mind that we have no attorneys on staff that can answer your legal questions, and that all concerns will be directed to an attorney through the Lawyer's Referral Service at the time of payment.
