Missouri.FreeLegalAnswers.Org Has Expanded its Guidelines

(Missouri) Missouri.FreeLegalAnswers.Org has expanded its services to help even more Missouri citizens of modest means receive answers to legal questions, at no cost, from licensed Missouri lawyers.

"Missouri lawyers want you to know you are not alone when it comes to the legal issues in your life," said John Gunn, 2019-20 Missouri Bar president-elect said in a press release. "If your income has been impacted by the current global crisis or if you qualify as a low-income household, you can have your legal questions answered for free. Missouri lawyers are volunteering their time and legal expertise to help you." 

Gunn said in order to serve more Missourians, changes have been made to the virtual clinic to expand income and asset guidelines and the number of questions individuals may ask annually has increased from three to five. Provisions have also been made for people who have been laid off as a result of the pandemic.  

To access the virtual clinic, follow these steps:

1.       Log in at Missouri.FreeLegalAnswers.org and answer a few questions to be sure you qualify for the service.   

2.       Ask your noncriminal legal question via the website.   

3.       One of our volunteer lawyers answers your question.   

4.       You get an email letting you know the answer has been provided. Log in to your account to view the answer. 

Gun said more Missouri lawyers are volunteering to help Missourians in this time of crisis. He encourages citizens to log in today to receive answers to the issues related to employment, landlord/tenant problems, contracts, and more that Missouri citizens are facing.
