NH Free Legal Answers Now Recruiting Attorney Volunteers
NH Free Legal Answers is here and open for attorney registrations! They need a few dozen attorneys onboard before the program can be opened to the public. Registering is very simple—go to NH.freelegalanswers.org and click on “Volunteer Registration” found in the horizontal bar across the top. Please note that for now Google will likely take you to ABA Free Legal Answers first, where you simple select New Hampshire as your state.
Free Legal Answers is a virtual legal advice clinic. 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.
