A New Pro Bono Online Service

Free Legal Answers is a virtual legal advice clinic sponsored by the American Bar Association in cooperation with state bar associations, including the NYS Bar. Qualifying users post their civil legal question to their state’s website. Users will then be emailed when their question receives a response. Attorney volunteers, who must be authorized to provide pro bono assistance in their state, log in to the website, select questions to answer, and provide legal information and advice. Volunteer attorneys will not answer criminal law questions.
