If you have a legal problem, chances are you're getting all sorts of legal advice. The mailman, your hair stylist, your brother-in-law, and the dentist, are all eager to offer information and counsel. There are, however, only two reliable sources of legal advice. Materials published by government agencies are one, and an attorney is the other.

Legal information is not exactly the same thing as legal advice. However, it might be a good idea to read some basic information about your particular situation to gain a bit of general knowledge in the early stages of your suit. If nothing else, you will know what questions to ask your attorney.

One of the best sites for information regarding Missouri laws is the website maintained by Missouri Legal Aid. There are many types of law discussed in very clear and accessible language. The Legal Database also offers valuable information, including things such as a list of those medications that are currently considered harmful.

Consult an Attorney for Valuable Legal Advice

Information can only take you so far, though. You will need to consult an attorney to get actual advice on your specific case. You can obtain a directory from the Missouri Bar Association, then visit websites online. Most lawyers will offer an initial consultation for no charge, in person or online, to establish whether your case has merit. From there, you can decide if the attorney seems qualified to handle your case.
