Legal Resources

Lawyer Referral & Information Service

The Baton Rouge Bar Association offers this community service to aid the public in obtaining legal services. The lawyer referral service arranges a low-cost initial $50 consultation between the client and a lawyer who accepts the type of case the client has. At this initial consultation, the lawyer will provide advice about the specific legal issue.  For a referral, contact Carole McGehee at or call 225-344-9926.
