1. HOW DOES THE SERVICE WORK?

The Wichita Bar Association is not in the practice of law. The Lawyer Referral Service merely makes referrals to attorneys who practice in the area of law you need. To receive a referral, you may: (1) download the application from prior page and return with the $25 fee paid by money order, Visa, Mastercard or Discover; (2) call our office at (316) 263-2251 extension 103 and we can fax or mail you the one-page application to fill out and return with a $25 money order, Visa, Mastercard or Discover; or (3) stop by the WBA office to fill out the application and pay the $25 fee by cash, Visa, Mastercard or Discover. If you choose to come to the office, no appointment is necessary, and the hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. A convenient appointment with a lawyer will be arranged for you. We may be able to arrange an appointment the same day you visit our office, but, if not, an appointment will be arranged as soon as possible. The lawyer you see has agreed to accept consultations in the area of law that concerns you.

2. WHAT WILL I GET?

Up to a 30 minute consultation with a lawyer, either in person or by phone, whichever you prefer. This initial consultation gives you time to ask questions about your problem, receive legal advice and arrange for further legal work if necessary. You are under no obligation to hire the lawyer; there is also no obligation that the lawyer must take your case.

3. WHAT IS THE INITIAL COST?

$25.00 cash, Visa, Mastercard or Discover (no checks). The investment of $25.00 for up to 30 minutes of legal advice is an inexpensive way to become informed and protect your rights. FREE consultation for Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice, Workers' Comp or Social Security disability cases. The lawyer you consult will be glad to discuss fees and costs of any additional services beyond the initial consultation, if such services are necessary. You may decide at that time if you wish to hire him/her.

4. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

Our office is located at 225 N. Market, Suite 200, Wichita, Kansas. Free parking is available on the south side of the building and a few "Visitor" parking spaces are also available on the north side of the building.

5. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR MY CONSULTATION?

Most importantly, be prepared to explain your legal problem clearly and quickly. Bring all documentation that could illustrate or strengthen your case. Write down important points that may save you time and money later.

6. WHAT IF I LIVE OUT OF STATE AND NEED AN ATTORNEY IN KANSAS?

Call (316)263-2251, extension 103 and your consultation can be handled by phone and by mail.
