About DearEsq: the Free Ask a Lawyer Site

DearEsq is the oldest free ‘ask a lawyer’ site on the Internet, and  one of the few places that you can ask a lawyer a question for free, and get answers from real lawyers, not only at no charge to you, but without having to give up your email address and get spammed by dozens of law firms wanting you to use their services.  This is because DearEsq is offered with no strings attached, and supports itself (the cost of hosting the site, etc.) with the advertising on the site (which barely covers expenses, to be honest).

DearEsq has been around for more than 20 years, since 1998, and is run by attorney Anne P. Mitchell, a graduate of Stanford Law school, an Internet law and policy attorney, and former professor of law and Dean of Cyberlaw.
