Why do we need a referral program? We’re proud of our Arts Legal Clinic. It is a great resource, and is usually all the help an artist needs. But sometimes, a clinic appointment ends with the client deciding they can’t handle the issue pro se. Other times, clients contact us because they already know they need a lawyer, but need help finding one with experience in the arts. A formal referral service lets us send more clients to more lawyers.
Washington Lawyers for the Arts is pleased to offer a referral service, connecting members of the public to qualified attorneys in all areas of practice. We are currently recruiting attorneys to join the panel. Panel attorneys can elect to accept pro bono, low fee and/or regular fee referrals.
The service is open to Washington lawyers in good standing with the Washington State Bar Association with three years of experience in the relevant practice area. We also require proof of liability insurance. A full list of requirements is outlined in the Washington Lawyers for the Arts Lawyer Referral Service Policies and Procedures.
