Lawyer Referral Services Terms and Conditions
An administrative fee of thirty dollars ($30.00) must be paid to the Attorney to whom you are referred at the initial consultation at his or her office. This fee will be remitted by the Attorney to The Chicago Bar Association (CBA). You should discuss directly with the Attorney, and agree upon, the legal fees for the Attorney's time in connection with the office consultation and for any subsequent services to be provided by the Attorney. The Attorney will thereafter remit to the CBA 15% of all legal fees obtained from a referred client.
The CBA provides its Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) as a public service. The CBA does not engage in the practice of law. The CBA expressly disclaims any and all warranties in connection with the operation of the LRS.
The following is a release of any claim you may have against The CBA, or its LRS, related to this referral. -- Read it carefully:
I HEREBY RELEASE THE CBA, ITS LRS, AND ANY OF THEIR OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND LRS COMMITTEE MEMBERS FROM ANY LIABILITY, LOSSES, DAMAGES, CLAIMS, CAUSES OF ACTION, INTEREST, EXPENSES, COSTS, AND ATTORNEYS' FEES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS REFERRAL OR MY REPRESENTATION BY THE ATTORNEY.
