Get Legal Advice Online

 The Minnesota Legal Advice Online Progam (MLAO), offered by Legal Services State Support, gives Minnesotans ages 14 and up the ability to email questions to lawyers. 

Eligibility:

  • MLAO clients must have a household income at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines (for individuals, this is an annual income of $23,340; for a family of four, it's $47,700). 

  • Clients must be Minnesota residents aged 14 or older. 

  • There are no asset thresholds or other limitations, such as immigration or incarceration status. 

  • MLAO is only for civil, or non-criminal, legal questions. If a client's question is about something he or she could go to jail for, that client cannot get legal advice for that question through MLAO.  The program also doesn't offer bankruptcy advice.  

    Clients cannot get advice from a volunteer lawyer through MLAO if they are already working with another lawyer on that legal issue.
