Full Answer

Using a legal advice hotline is a cost-friendly alternative to hiring a lawyer. Many hotlines operate for free, and some may also offer paid services. Some hotlines return calls when messages are left, such as the Lawyers Alliance Hotline for Nonprofits, which offers advice to the general public and professionals. Advice given via a hotline can be used for self-representation or as a general resource to learn about a person's rights.
