Lawyer Referral Services

  • Do you need personal assistance with your search for a lawyer?  

  • Do you have a legal question and want to talk with a lawyer but don’t know who to trust?    

The DCBA Lawyer Referral Service is happy to help find a private lawyer for you!

The Lawyer Referral Service staff will match you with a Dauphin County Bar Association member who practices in the area of law appropriate for your legal needs. 

In addition to being a Bar Association member in good standing, our lawyers are appropriately licensed, insured and have no disciplinary actions against them.  Each lawyer selected the areas of law in which they will accept referrals.

Like other Bar Association Referral Services, we charge a $51.50 non-refundable administrative fee via credit card and in return you may schedule a consultation of up to one half hour (30 minutes) with the attorney.   The consultation will not be today and usually is scheduled for the next week or twoThus, our service is not designed for emergency situations.    If you decide you want to hire that attorney, then you discuss fee arrangements directly with the attorney. 

You can either click here, click on the blue “Find a Lawyer button” or call our Referral Service at 717.232.7536 to connect with our staff.  Please select option 2, then listen carefully to the options provided and leave a detailed message.  We make every effort to return all calls within two business days – please only leave one message within that time period to allow our small staff to better serve you.  You can be confident that our staff will find the right lawyer for you!

Please note:  Our return calls may come from a blocked number.  The Referral Service does not accept walk-ins and is closed on Fridays.  The Service does NOT provide FREE legal services and our staff is not allowed to give legal advice or answer legal questions.


If you do not qualify for legal aid, but cannot afford a lawyer’s regular rate, you may be eligible for our Modest Means Program.  For more information and an application, please click here:  Modest Means Application
