Legal Help

Legal Resources
  1. Search online for information and assistance pertaining to your issue or case. There are a few web sites that have legal research and attorneys online to give out free legal advice
  2. Contact an attorney and pose your legal query to them. They may reply with a quick response instead of having you come in for a legal consultation.
  3. Check online forums. Law forums, like the ones found on World Law Direct, allow users to discuss their legal problems with lawyers throughout the country.
  4. Take advantage of a free consultation with a lawyer. Lawyers often offer an opportunity for potential clients to meet and discuss the matter for free to see if you have a case.
  5. Research law books. Go to the library and review law books. Look through current editions to find information on your legal problem.
