VaLegalAid.org Launches with Upgraded Design, New Features
Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012
www.VaLegalAid.org, the free, statewide resource for those facing civil legal issues, relaunched today with a more user-friendly design and upgraded features that will make it easier than ever to find needed assistance. The site is part of the national LawHelp.org network of nonprofit legal information portals that empower individuals to help themselves. VaLegaAid.org is Virginia’s online source of free legal aid referrals, know-your-rights information and a variety of self-help tools. The site is maintained by the Virginia Poverty Law Center and Blue Ridge Legal Services, in conjunction with Pro Bono Net, a nonprofit leader in increasing access to justice for the disadvantaged.
In addition to the updated design, www.VaLegalAid.org now features a more powerful search function, easier-to-find resources and more accessible referral information. The site will offer more efficient and effective assistance to those seeking help with problems in areas such as housing, family law, consumer debt and domestic violence.
