LAWYER REFERRAL SERVICE - ASN

ATTORNEY SEARCH NETWORK #39335072


location_on D

  • Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles

The Attorney Search Network offers a Lawyer Referral and Information Service to help individuals find an attorney by referring them to qualified legal professionals in most areas of the law.

Attorneys must proactively register with Attorney Search Network to be included in their database. Therefore, there will only be search results based on attorneys who have registered their name and area of law practice. Not all counties will have attorneys in all areas of legal practice in the Attorney Search Network.

A referral may not be available due to a variety of factors which may include:
  • registered attorneys in a practice specialty are fully booked (For example: tenant law attorneys.)
  • there may be no registered attorneys in a practice specialty (For example: as of July 2023 there are no attorneys registered with ASN who work in the area of interpersonal defamation issues online. Verbal defamation is called "slander." Written defamation is called "libel.")
