Client friendly legal answers
The internet makes research so much easier, by making periodicals, books, and previously unknown sources such as blogs readily available at all hours. Legal cases, statutes, rules and local codes can be located and read without leaving the house. With such riches comes the flip side – too much information, on too many levels, often making it frustrating to find the answer to a seemingly simple question.
Don’t look for this problem to go away since the internet grows exponentially. A new consumer-friendly legal site has recently debuted, which should ease the search for answers to commonly encountered problems. Clientelevision.com features a number of short television-style segments on a variety of topics, from criminal law to car loans. I appear in some of the employment area topics.
