Join LawyerConnect and Build your Business!

What is LawyerConnect?

  • LawyerConnect is a service offered by the Birmingham Bar Association to assist people in our community who want to hire an attorney.
  • Birmingham Bar members are eligible to join LawyerConnect and will receive referrals based on their practice areas on a rotating basis.
  • LawyerConnect is not a pro bono or reduced-fee service.  Prospective clients are advised that all legal fees, including any consultation fee, are negotiated between the referred attorney and prospective client.
  • Neither the attorney nor the potential client is under any obligation to move forward with the matter after the initial contact. 

How much does it cost?

  • Becoming a LawyerConnect attorney is only $150 per year.
  • The program runs from May through April each year; fees are not pro-rated if a member joins during the course of the year.

What are the requirements?

  • To sign up for LawyerConnect, you must be in good standing with the Alabama State Bar. 
  • Also, you must be a member of the Birmingham Bar Association.
  • There are a few rules, and they are available here.
