A lawyer is the house. Free West Virginia legal information with no strings attached is winning a lot of new fans. Legal Aid of West Virginia has posted hundreds of articles about common legal issues online for those who can't, or don't want, to pay an attorney to get an answer to a question. Director Adrienne Worthy says through their years of helping people with legal issues, they've discovered many problems don't need to go to court.

"There's a whole category of folks who don't necessarily need a lawyer; they need legal information to help them sort out what their problem is."

Worthy notes their Web site, www.lawv.net, doesn't require site registration, and there's no aggressive advertising as with many other private company legal sites. She adds that the online information isn't a substitute for a lawyer, but it does outline rights and responsibilities that can help people avoid problems, or prevent little ones from turning into big legal issues.

Worthy says while their mission is to help lower-income West Virginia families with legal troubles, the new
Web site has helpful information for just about everyone.

"[We handle] everything from consumer law and credit, landlord-tenant issues, fair and safe housing, domestic violence and family law issues, disability issues."
