Legal Help Websites

What legal help websites can help a person in the US with a civil justice problem?

There are commercial legal help sites that provide general guidance or issue-specific tools. Or there are public interest legal help sites that offer free, nonprofit materials, forms, and links to legal aid and the courts.

We have compiled 2 master lists of legal help websites in the United States. We have included the sites that are the most heavily trafficked as of 2021.

There are a few main factors to look at for legal help websites:

  • Issue Area: General or Specific?: What is the problem type that the person is dealing with? Some websites cover all kinds of civil justice issues (and possibly also criminal, immigration, administrative, and beyond). Others websites just help on a single type of issue. In our legal help website lists below, you can see which are general or issue-specific.
  • Commercial or Public Interest: if they want to use a commercial (for-profit) or public interest (non-profit or government) platform.

Explore these master lists to see which websites exist — and which have the most traffic.
