Marketing & Client Development

Our client-building services offer cost-effective, powerful marketing opportunities. With modern technology, people looking for lawyers are buried in information and often don’t know where to start.

Gain an advantage with the trusted reputation of the Columbus Bar Association supporting you and your practice, online and over the phone.

Lawyer Referral Service (LRS)

Each month, the Columbus Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service receives around 2,000 inquiries from callers seeking legal services. For less than the cost of two billable hours, attorneys who agree to abide by our high standards can receive a year of quality referrals to expand their client base. Contact for information or download the LRS application.

Columbus Bar Directory

Around 30,000 people looking for a lawyer use the CBA website every month. Members receive access to an enhanced profile in our widely-used Digital Directory. Make your profile stand out by adding photos, an elevator speech and more. Add practice areas to your profile and your name will appear in search results for those areas.  Great benefits all year long for a minimum of $35 a year ($185 for firms). Contact with any questions about your CBA Directory profile.

CBA Media Studio

Reaching clients with digital media is essential, especially as we remain socially distanced but connected by technology - and it can be very affordable! The Columbus Bar Association's Media Studio is available to assist you with professional portraits and any other photo, video and audio needs. Discounted pricing and special packages for CBA members, including a free portrait every 2 years.

LRS Testimonial

"Our general practice firm has been a participant in the CBA Lawyer Referral Service for over 35 years. I strongly recommend that any attorney seeking additional quality business at an attractive cost enroll in the program."
