The first step in dealing with any legal issue is research. Before calling an attorney, consumers generally want to learn more about what they're facing. FindLaw's Learn About the Law section is the perfect first stop for consumers looking for legal help. The section provides expert legal information on everything from personal injury to bankruptcy law.
Once consumers are done researching and discover they need an attorney, they can find one through FindLaw.com's Lawyer Directory. The directory offers a searchable database of skilled attorneys organized by both practice areas and geographic location. Below, you'll find more information on how FindLaw's Learn About the Law section provides helpful legal resources, while connecting consumers with the right attorney for their case.
Learn About the Law
As the leading source for online legal information, FindLaw is the first place consumers look for answers to their legal questions. The site's Learn About the Law section covers a wide range of practice areas, including injury law, DUI, criminal law, bankruptcy, civil rights, and consumer protection. Each practice area contains dozens of articles written by lawyers in language that non-legal audiences can digest. In addition to in-depth legal information, the articles provide practical tips on finding the right attorney, gathering information for an initial consultation, and much more.
