The website listed above is a website that Northwest Justice Project maintains in collaboration with our legal services partners. It is a noteworthy resource and it occurred to me a column about the website would be useful.

In these difficult economic times, communities are experiencing reductions in all types of services. As a result, it is imperative the public know about resources like WashingtonLawHelp. We recognize we can only assist a mere fraction of the people who are in need of legal services. This website is one of many ways we try to broadly assist the public in tackling legal issues. The website is intended for use by the public to empower people to advocate for themselves. Navigating legal issues can be confusing and intimidating; however, there are many legal issues people can navigate without a lawyer.
