Summary

In short, the LawFiles.net website ("website") allows users to submit questions to select attorneys in the network of attorneys. The website also provides educational articles.

In fact, attorneys who participate in our website receive free listings and exposure on our very popular website, for which many other far less popular legal websites sometimes charge hundreds or thosands of dollars a year.
