On Tuesday nights the WV State Bar operates the Tuesday Legal Connect. Volunteer lawyers take calls from the public, and offer suggestions and guidance about their questions. Every Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., lawyers volunteer their time to answer questions that are presented by men and women throughout West Virginia on a toll free telephone line. The lawyers listen to the citizens’ comments and questions. They help the callers assess:
- Whether the caller really does have a legal problem.
- Whether there are some simple steps the caller can take to try to solve their problem without a lawyer.
- Whether the caller really does need to have a lawyer to help them.
The volunteer lawyers can provide general legal information. But they cannot provide direct legal advice or legal assistance about your case. To give legal advice, a lawyer would need more information and details than a short telephone call can provide. To reach the Tuesday Legal Connect, call 1-800-642-3617.
