The LGBT Bar Association of Greater New York (LeGaL) built this platform to connect the LGBT community and allies with the attorneys in our Lawyer Referral Network. 


Let us help find the right lawyer to guide you through your legal matters. 

Our network includes lawyers from all practice areas-family law, immigration law, criminal law, employment law, and so much more. These experienced attorneys will guide you from consultation to engagement and beyond. ​

Instead of searching the internet for lawyers all over New York state, our platform and our team will do the job for you. The process is very simple. Submit the form below. If matched with an attorney, usually in 24 hours, you will receive an introductory email from us. All you have to do is schedule that appointment.

To find the right attorney start by filling out the form below.

Please also note the following:

* LeGaL’s Lawyer Referral Network does not itself engage in the practice of law and cannot answer legal questions or give legal advice, but instead offers to refer you to a private attorney who may charge a fee for his or her services.  During your consultation with a referral attorney, you should discuss any legal issues that you may have and any retainer fee or other fees that may apply should you choose to retain the attorney.

* No fee is charged to submit a matter for the referral service.  However, if you retain an attorney through the referral service, the attorney may provide LeGaL a small referral fee.

* LeGaL cannot guarantee the outcome of any representation.  Attorneys listed on the service certify that they are admitted to practice and in good standing, have a malpractice insurance policy, and have experience in the areas of law in which they request to be listed.

* LeGaL generally only provides referrals to lawyers located within the NYC/NJ greater metropolitan area.
