Need legal help? The Alabama State Bar Association is launching an online platform to help people find legal help in their area

The Alabama State Bar Association has created a website to help people, regardless of income or education level, get legal help and understand important information about the court system.

The new online platform, Justice4AL.com, is easy to navigate and directs people to services in their geographic region, the bar association said in a press release.

“We recognize the significant hurdles many Alabama residents face in finding and accessing legal counsel,” said Brannon Buck, former president of the Alabama State Bar, who led the development and launch of Justice4AL.com. “Our goal is to empower individuals to navigate the legal system with confidence and ease, regardless of their financial situation or educational background.”

The Alabama State Bar Association, noting that more than a million people in Alabama live below the poverty line, said people can use the new platform to get legal help with issues such as debt collection disputes, negligent landlords, wills, child support and custody issues, and other areas.

Justice4AL.com not only connects people with those who can provide legal assistance, but also provides information about courts, court personnel and relevant legal processes to help them represent their rights and interests.

“By providing free legal resources and information, we hope to promote equality, fairness and justice for all Alabama residents,” Buck said.
