Tired of ordinary advertising methods? Want to get your name in front of motivated clients? Join the DCBA Lawyer Referral Service!

The Lawyer Referral Service generates leads from calls and online referrals. There is no cost to the clients and we ask member attorneys to provide up to a half hour of complimentary consultation time. Membership dues for the program are reasonable and DCBA membership is not required. DCBA actively advertises the program to the community.  Proof of its reputation in the community is found in the high number of referrals that are generated by word of mouth. In the last year, DCBA’s Lawyer Referral Service has sent 12,000 referrals to our 153 LRS Members.

Participation in the Lawyer Referral & Mediation Service is open to all attorneys that:
  • Have malpractice insurance in effect
  • Are licensed to practice in the State of Illinois
  • Abide by the DCBA Rules and Regulations
  • Are current with DCBA Referral Service dues
