Tennessee Free Legal Answers is a web portal where Tennesseans can ask advice from a licensed Tennessee attorney. Visit the website to email a lawyer to ask a question about your civil legal issue. This is a free service. First, you will give some details about yourself. These details will be used to see if you qualify for the help. Then you’ll post your civil legal question so a lawyer can offer legal advice and information about your issue. You’ll receive an email when you receive a response. The site used to be named Online TN Justice, but its name changed to match other states when the model went national.
