Legal Aid of North Carolina debuts new website
Legal Aid of North Carolina has fully launched its new website at the existing legalaidnc.org address. Designed and developed by Charlotte-based Kelso Communications and Priceless Misc, the website features the new Legal Aid NC brand debuted earlier this year to celebrate and honor the organization’s 20th anniversary.
Navigation has been updated to better tell the organization’s story and demonstrate the incredible impact the organization makes in all 100 counties of North Carolina. Most importantly, client resources and self-help materials have been reorganized to be easily accessible and searchable. The new legalaidnc.org website also makes it easier for the community to donate and get involved.
“While I am thrilled with how fresh and friendly the design of our new website is, I am even more excited by how well it will serve our clients,” said Ashley Campbell, CEO of Legal Aid of North Carolina. “Our attorneys, paralegals and staff are always happy to help, but this website will help our community educate and empower themselves.”
The new Get Help section of legalaidnc.org:
Puts front-and-center a news carousel where clients can see important alerts and time-sensitive information like application deadlines and emergency-specific resources.
Features “one stop shop” sections dedicated to housing, domestic violence and sexual assault, healthcare access, government benefits, seniors, family law, consumer issues, employment and more.
Neatly organizes specific resources, events and links to other articles within each topic area (see the Housing section for example).
Highlights local offices, how to contact Legal Aid NC for assistance and self-help clinics where users can learn to handle certain basic legal issues without hiring an attorney.
In addition to better serving clients, the robust Pro Bono section of legalaidnc.org caters to members of the legal community across North Carolina who are looking for a way to give back. The website features a full list of pro bono programs and staff who can help attorneys, law students, paralegals and others channel their passion into projects that maximize their impact and time. The website also features opportunities for continuing legal education.
