HelpMeLaw.org offers smart help on legal matters – Bangor Daily News

HelpMeLaw.org offers smart help on legal matters – Bangor Daily News.

It’s a Web site launched recently by Pine Tree Legal Assistance. The statewide organization assists low-income and senior citizens with legal problems. The site, www.HelpMELaw.org, offers a variety of resources that anyone can use.

The user-friendly site is organized into four areas. The first, titled “Search,” lets users type in a word or phrase and returns relevant topics.

Clicking the “Legal Library” heading takes you to a “bookshelf” where various areas of law are stored in “folders.” Click one of these — Housing, Education, Family or Elder Law, Employment and, of course, Consumer Law — and you will visit a number of sub-categories of each.

There’s a section titled “Helpful Organizations.” Just as its name implies, it lists agencies around Maine that can help people resolve legal issues. Some offer low-cost or even no-cost help.
