Happy Birthday, Michigan Legal Help!

Happy Birthday, Michigan Legal Help!

Monday, August 18, 2014

Today we celebrate our second birthday. It is an important milestone! It is also a good time to reflect on how far we have come, so here are a few fun facts about Michigan Legal Help at two years:

  • We have published 100 articles on Michigan Legal Help about many different legal topics. These articles appear in 41 different toolkits in the areas of Family Law, Consumer Law, Protection from Abuse, Housing Law, Expungement, Public Benefits, Individual Rights, and Income Tax.
  • Michigan Legal Help visitors complete an average of 125 interviews per day, getting the forms they need to file in court.
  • This year, we created and launched Ayuda Legal de Michigan, a Spanish language version of Michigan Legal help. While not everything on Michigan Legal Help is available in Spanish yet, we are working hard to translate more tools every week.
  • We have six videos to watch and learn about your legal rights. 
  • We have helped more than 2,800 people through the Live Help chat feature on Michigan Legal Help.

We'd also like to share with you some of the feedback that we've gotten over the last few months:

  • "This made my life so much simpler. I have been agonizing over starting the process because it seemed so daunting. This seemed to simplify everything for me and help me be confident that I am not walking into the courthouse unprepared. Thank you so much. I will definitely recommending this service to others."

  • "Thank you so much for providing great information on this site. I have searched all over for forms to file custody and this site was just what I was looking for."

  • "You provide a well needed service, and it is appreciated. Very user friendly, and very professional. Thank you."

  •  "I think this legal help program is excellent for people like myself that cannot afford an attorney. Plus it's an excellent program for people that just need to know their rights. I love this site and I have recommended to others in my area. So Thank you very much for the much needed help."

  • "This was extremely helpful and helped to relieve some of the stress i was feeling related to trying to handle my divorce without an attorney."

We'd like to thank everyone who has worked with us to make this site possible, and thank you to everyone who has visited it and used it. Feedback like the quotes above are why we work so hard on Michigan Legal Help - knowing that we have helped people makes all the difference. Here's to many more years of the same!
