About Us

We’ve personally experienced problems in our lives that required legal assistance.  The first thing we did was to ask our friends and family for advice.  We quickly realized this wasn’t the best solution.

That’s why we created AskLegally.com.  You Google a question and hopefully we have an answer that you see in the Google search results.

After you read our content, it’s our hope that you trust us enough to connect you with the right lawyer to help you.  In doing so, we aim to save you time and stress.

We’re a team of current and former lawyers, researchers, and entrepreneurs.  We use our experience to share important information in an easy-to-understand way.  Then, we connect you with professionals to help with your unique situation. Armed with vital info, you can feel confident in your free online consultation.
