Avvo

avvoIt’s difficult to find good legal advice without actually talking to an attorney…as it probably should be.  Except that sometimes you may only be doing initial research, or looking for a simple answer to a basic legal question.  For these types of inquiries it helps to go where qualified experts can lend a hand, without a lot of digging and hassle.  Avvo is an ‘expert site’ with a focus on legal matters.  Users can post a question, or browse through a growing database of competent answers to previously asked questions.  You’ll find similar information at other sites no doubt but it’s nice to see a place dedicated to what can often be a tricky area of knowledge.  In addition to the Answers & Advice section Avvo features helpful Legal Guides, written by actual licensed attorneys (who receive rankings based on their level of contribution to the site – along with various other factors).  If you find a contributor who’s feedback was especially helpful click on their name to visit their profile page to learn more about them.  Avvo also offers a helpful Lawyer Search tool, letting you filter by practice area such as Business, Foreclosure, Immigration, Tax law and many others.

The entire presention of this site is clean & organized, and does a great job bringing lawyers and laypersons together.  For this reason it’s earned a permanent place in my ‘experts’ folder.  For more information on what Avvo is about I recommend taking a look at their Mission Statement.
