In order to accomplish that goal, we're launching mi.freelegalanswers.org, a pro bono website that is beginning in Genesee County that we hope will expand across the state, and will make it very easy for attorneys to provide quick, correct answers to the important and urgent questions of low income people.
We're working on this project in collaboration with Legal Services of Eastern Michigan, the Genesee County Bar Association and the American Bar Association.
In order to get this project up and running we need attorneys in Genesee County to sign up and participate. Once you sign up, you decide where and when you'll participate. You do not have to meet any time commitments. And clients will be given the understanding that you will not go to court with them or prepare any paperwork for them. By participating in the program, you will be provided with free malpractice coverage for legal guidance you provide via mi.freelegalanswers.org.
