From their website:

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.


Participating states have their own page where qualifying residents will post their question. Look at your state’s page for more information. Free Legal Answers is a project of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service.
