If you think you need a lawyer, chances are, you do. But what if you are really not sure? What if you don’t know what questions you should ask?
The Knoxville Bar Association developed LawLine Online to assist clients in determining if they have a legal matter or if another entity would be better suited to offer assistance. With the help of the local courts, governmental and community service organizations and more than thirty-five members of the Knoxville Bar Association, LawLine Online became a reality in June, 1999.
More than 70 topics, grouped in 16 major categories, aid in understanding common legal problems, recognizing potential legal problems and understanding how the justice system works. Additionally, there is information on where to go if further help is needed. The messages are written in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner using everyday language.
The LawLine material is reviewed for accuracy by attorney volunteers on a regular basis or as needed when changes occur to Tennessee law. While not intended to replace the advice of an attorney or provide specific legal advice, LawLine Online can nevertheless provide general information and assist those who aren’t sure where to go for help, or even what kind of help they may need.
The Knoxville Bar Association is a non-profit corporation organized to work for the improvement and increased effectiveness of the legal profession and the administration of justice. The Association, which has 1,854 members, offers continuing legal education and service to the community through programs such as the Lawyer Referral & Information Service, Legal Advice Clinics and LawLine OnLine.
