The law, courts and legal processes in general can be extremely complicated and often when you need some advice it’s difficult to know in which direction to turn. You could, of course, hire an attorney, or simply book an appointment to see a lawyer, but this costs money. In fact, just to get a simple law-related question answered could prove to be very expensive, but often this is your only course of action.

With that being said, with the introduction of the Internet we have been able to educate ourselves on a wide variety of subjects, including law and legal aid. However, just to make matters that much easier, you now have the ability to receive legal help in real time directly through your smartphone. There are numerous iPhone and Android apps available in the marketplace, which are dedicated to answering any questions about law, legal matters, and seeking advice about criminal offences.
