If you’re looking for a lawyer, then you likely have a number of questions that you need answered: questions that can be maddeningly difficult to find online. While it’s easy enough to find specific sections of the law in your state, understanding how those sections relates to your situation is usually difficult. In fact, that’s why attorneys spend so much time in law school—to learn how to interpret our laws. Fortunately for you, those same lawyers are starting to provide free, easy to understand advice, in the form of online lawyer videos. Most lawyer videos are created with the intent of answering basic legal questions as they pertain to specific scenarios. You may well ask, why would lawyers do that?

Instead of wading through a large number of lawyer websites, go instead to a lawyer video directory, and start searching for answers to your questions. Once on the directory, you’ll find a wide range of videos posted by lawyers, many of which likely relate to your case.

You can try simply posing your question in the search bar, but it might be more efficient to browse through videos under the appropriate topic.
- Look at podcasts. Find an attorney who handles the type of law that most relates to your legal questions, and who also makes lawyer video podcasts that are clear and easy to understand. Chances are, he or she has a mailbag feature, or would otherwise be willing to answer your questions in his or her podcast.
- Look for videos tangentially related to your legal problem. Often, good lawyer videos will answer questions that you didn’t even know you had—and that are integral to your case or suit. Lawyers are putting their experience and knowledge into their videos, and their free legal advice is often more helpful than
Lawyer videos can be an effective way to get free legal advice that will help you overcome your legal challenges. By knowing where to go and what to look for when you get there, you can spare yourself the hassle of a broad Internet search—and possibly find the right lawyer to represent you in the process.
