Herald-Tribune: Bringing the law to your fingertips

Herald-Tribune: Bringing the law to your fingertips. “According to the Legal Services Commission, 86 percent of legal problems reported by low-income Americans in the past year were handled with ‘inadequate or no legal help.’ About 71 percent of low-income households experienced at least one civil problem with health care, housing, disability access, veterans’ benefits and domestic violence. That caused an estimated 1.7 million low-income Americans to seek support from legal aid groups, the commission said. Most legal information is available free online, but it’s difficult to navigate without law training. My Law, which is accessible as a website or an app for Apple devices, organizes state statutes and rules for traffic, criminal, family, appellate, juvenile, small-claims and civil court, among others under icons such as ‘Law Online’ and ‘Rule Library.’ They are searchable using keywords.”
