Lawyer Referral Outreach
Friday 8th June 2012 13:17
The Community Legal Information Association (CLIA), in collaboration with the Law Society of PEI, is launching a Lawyer Referral Service outreach program to further develop and improve this important service.
The Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) relies on a network of lawyers who provide low cost legal consultations to Islanders.
“This is a great way to for lawyers to use their expertise and give back to the community” says Parker Deighan, Outreach Coordinator for CLIA. “The clients who call in are usually overwhelmed or confused about the legal system; this service is an excellent way for the lawyers to point them in the right direction and have a significant impact on these Islanders lives.“
In the course of the summer, Parker will be working the phones and hitting the road in an effort to meet with every PEI lawyer. "We want the legal community to know that the Lawyer Referral Service is an excellent way to build a legal practice or expand an existing one," says Deighan. "Even more importantly, it’s a great way to build a truly Just Community."
