Quezon City launches online legal assistance
Quezon City launched an online legal assistance program to make legal resources, documents, city ordinances, and other information more accessible to residents amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte said the Quezon City Online Legal Assistance is like a “virtual lawyer” that can provide legal assistance to those who will access it anytime.
“Even during this pandemic, many of our residents need legal aid–from drafting legal and business forms and contracts, to understanding legal documents,” Belmonte said in a statement.
The program, that can be accessed at www.credits.mylegalwhiz.com, was done in partnership with online legal resource MyLegalWhiz.
Each resident who will sign in on the website will get 500 free credits. These can be used to access case summaries, drafts of legal documents, and city ordinances.
The website also features Legal Engineer Assistant, a digital research assistant that can assist the user in drafting documents and in reaching an attorney if they need one.
General knowledge on COVID-19 will also be included in the website.
