Re: “Searching for justice: Arkansas is short on lawyers

Attorneys are definitely clustered in Central & NWA, leaving a lot of un- and under-employed attorneys in those areas. Unfortunately, the offerings in rural communities for attorneys is scarce and other factors prevent many attorneys from relocating to those areas. Some factors include rate of pay v. large student loan debt and difficulty of the attorney's spouse finding work in many areas. The crisis is both affordability and accessibility. I recently launched Arkansas Virtual Lawyer to help bridge the gap between legal aid and traditional legal services. By providing limited scope services for pro se litigants at flat fees substantially lower than traditional services and providing those services online I hope to put legal services within physical and financial reach of those who need help. People really need quality attorney assistance for their important legal matters, something that the national non-attorney corporations like LegalZoom and other similar legal services cannot replicate. I think if more attorneys add limited scope offerings to their practice and better utilize technology to reach the underserved that the heavy Legal Aid caseload would be lightened and more Arkansans would have a fair shot in the legal process.
