For more than a decade, Lisa M. Nousek has served as a partner with Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, based in Armonk, New York. In conjunction with her legal practice, Lisa M. Nousek is an active member of the New York State Bar Association.

New York residents now have a new tool at their disposal when they need to find a nearby lawyer that can help with their specific legal issues. The New York State Bar Association, in a joint effort with Legal.io, has launched a web portal that individuals can use round-the-clock.

The new website, nysbalris.legal.io, offers a simple, confidential process. Clients will need to fill out a brief questionnaire highlighting their specific legal questions, and to provide the area of New York State in which they currently reside. NYSBA staff will review the responses and refer issues to attorneys practicing in close proximity to the customers. The referral service is offered at no cost to users. There is a $35 fee if a client chooses to have a 30-minute consultation with a lawyer referred through the site. There is, however, no obligation to retain that specific lawyer as counsel.
