ABA Free Legal Answers in the News

"As it marks a third anniversary of expanding access to justice, Florida Free Legal Answers can proudly claim a new title — social distancing trailblazer." This article discusses Florida's experience with ABA Free Legal Answers.

ABA Free Legal Answers Pro Bono Leaders

The ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service annually recognizes individual attorneys, law firms, and other legal groups that have provided extraordinary pro bono services through ABAFreeLegalAnswers.org—a virtual legal clinic through which income-eligible clients can post civil legal services questions to be answered by pro bono attorneys from their state.


"What a pleasant surprise to learn that my pro bono responses have made a difference. I am so grateful that the American Bar Association has made this opportunity possible. It is actually one of the most relaxing things I do as an attorney."

Linda Reid Oldham, Crockett & Oldham Attorneys
