Lawyer Referral Service (LRS)

Limited Experience Panel

As an effort to support LACBA members that are newly licensed, zero to five years in practice, LACBA’s Lawyer Referrals Service has a ‘Limited Experience’ panel that allows young lawyers to get pre-screened referrals to paying clients. The Limited Experience panel, a LACBA exclusive, is a great way for young lawyers to build business, explore practice areas, and gain expertise.
