ABA: Self-Help Center Census

by Joe Kaczrowski | Mar 06, 2015

A recent survey by the ABA Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services identified another under-served segment of the population.  Many people are aware of the access to justice issue posed by too many people who can't afford legal representation, but there is another group: people who can afford legal representation but do not know how to find an attorney; according to the ABA, “there's also a sizable segment who can afford to pay for legal services, and lawyers would benefit from efforts to figure out how to create an effective pipeline between the two groups”

The MSBA's new MN Find a Lawyer directory seeks to help you fill this need.  mnfindalawyer.com is an established brand, and the new directory offers even more functionality to those in need of legal representation.  Members of the public can search by geographic area, practice law, keywords, Certified Specialists, and more.

In the first two months, over 17,000 searches were run.  Over 700 members have already added their profile to MN Find a Lawyer.  If you haven't already done so, getting listed is quick and easy.  Just log in on the MSBA website and Edit your Profile.  Check the box to "Include me in MN Find a Lawyer Directory" (and make sure you have selected a default address below) and click save.  You're now in the MN Find a Lawyer directory.
