Free legal help is available, but it’s important to understand what constitutes solid legal advice when it comes to finding information on the internet. It’s important to access advice from a reliable source that has information you can rely on, preferably with actual licensed attorneys.
If you choose a free legal chat, you can generally assume that someone with legal knowledge will be there to help you. There are several ways to find answers to your questions without paying for the information you need, but using a free legal chat from 1Law can provide you with advice from an actual lawyer.
How Do I Use the 1Law Free Legal Chat?
Our free legal chat is very user-friendly and doesn’t require any specialized knowledge to use. All you need to do is press the “Start Free Chat” button to begin your connection with a law firm to answer your legal questions.
Our chatbot works like any other chatting interface you may be familiar with. It will gather the answers to a few questions to determine who can best address your needs, and then locate the appropriate lawyer or legal staff to connect you to.
You will then begin chatting in real-time with a legal professional or lawyer who contributes their time to answer your legal questions. Please view our explainer video for more information if you need further clarification on how our free legal chat works.
Are Real Lawyers Behind the Free Legal Chat?
In most cases, yes, real lawyers with actual law firms and real support staff volunteer to answer the questions on free legal chat. They are volunteers, and they’re happy to help because most law firms realize that the people they help can become clients.
In certain cases, you might begin chatting with legal support staff such as a paralegal to answer more general questions. When the questions are more complex, a lawyer will answer. When using the chat feature, real human beings will address your questions and you can be safe in the knowledge that they are licensed, legal professionals.
However, be advised that because you are discussing legal matters through a chat tool without having hired a lawyer, you do not obtain the benefit of attorney-client privilege.

Are There Websites Where I Can Ask Lawyers Questions?
There are websites that allow you to post questions and wait for answers. There are public forums where attorneys might contribute to the conversation. And there are services that you can pay for. When you search for free things on the internet, most of the options returned aren’t really free.
However, some of these free services can offer legitimate legal advice, while others may allow anyone to answer questions without any verifiable information about legitimacy. Quora is a good site where professionals in any field can jump on and answer questions.
A lawyer may find your question intriguing and decide to answer it. You may even be able to do a search and verify that you are hearing from a real attorney. If you don’t have a pressing legal need, this can be a free source of information, although you may have to wait a few days before you get an answer.
