New Jersey State Bar Association
The New Jersey State Bar Association was founded in 1899 to "promote the personal and professional interests of its members," to "promote access to the justice system, fairness in its administration and encourage participation in voluntary pro bono activities," and to "foster professionalism and pride in the [legal] profession and the New Jersey State Bar Association," among others.
The New Jersey State Bar Association is a voluntary organization, so not every lawyer in New Jersey is a member. However, they do have some useful links on their website directing visitors to official state bodies, including links to free and low-cost legal services, information on reporting attorney misconduct, and information on handling fee disputes with attorneys.
Bar associates often provide a basic referral service for individuals seeking an attorney. As an alternative to utilizing bar associations, LegalMatch offers a straightforward matching service that quickly and easily connects you to a number of qualified New Jersey attorneys. The service is entirely free. An established online business, LegalMatch maintains an extensive database of attorneys located in New Jersey and across the country.
