Bob Ambrogi reports here on the pro bono work of a two attorney firm, Moran and Gottlieb and links to this story about the firm in the Poughkeepsie Journal.  Subsidizing their pro bono work with revenues from paying clients, Moran and Gottlieb maintain a free telephone hotline to field questions from anyone who cares to call them.   And once a week, Gottlieb dispenses free legal advice at a local homeless shelter.   Moran and Gottlieb’s efforts should inspire other solo and small firm lawyers to do our share as well.

    we the people is really giving legal advice without the benefit of a law license. i have spent a lot of time and client money for fees over the years trying to clarify, fix, and undo divorces completed on these forms by pro se litigants. the illinois bar is doing a public service by getting these folks to stop practicing law without a license.
