Free Legal Answers is an online version of the walk-in clinic model where clients request brief advice and counsel about a specific civil legal issue from a volunteer lawyer. Lawyers provide information and basic legal advice without any expectation of long-term representation. The purpose of the website is to increase access to advice and information about non-criminal legal matters to those who cannot afford it. There is no fee for the use of the system or for the advice and information provided by the lawyer. Go to ny.freelegalanswers.orgto sign up as a volunteer attorney.  If you have any questions about Free Legal Answers, please contact the Pro Bono Services Department at 518-487-5641.
