For those of us interested in increasing access to legal assistance for those with limited resources, there are now apps for that. Free apps to find a lawyer or legal assistance such as Ask a Lawyer:Legal Help, CitizenshipWorks (for immigration assistance) and LawZam (matching lawyers and clients) are all free. Other apps like Stop & Frisk (free), Disastr (free web app) and My Health Care Wishes Pro ($3.99) address more specific legal concerns.
For more Access to Justice apps, see the ABA Journal's listing and descriptions.
