AdviceScene.com challenges lawyers to match its pledge support for the upcoming pro bono legal advice fundraiser. AdviceScene.com will donate $50.00 and provide online promotion for any lawyer that volunteers for the Advice-A-Thon to be held on three different days in Victoria, Vancouver and Kelowna, British Columbia. Advice-A-Thon lawyers volunteer their time to provide free legal advice to raise funds so BC's pro bono programs can continue to facilitate access to justice for low and modest-income people.

As an incentive, AdviceScene.com will also offer a 20% time-limited discount on all of its online promotional packages to any lawyer in Canada who matches their $50.00 sponsorship pledge to Advice-A-Thon volunteer lawyers. AdviceScene.com offers the legal community a variety of promotional packages, including websites, hosting, a directory with free and premium listings and sponsorship opportunities on the fastest growing legal site in Canada.

AdviceScene.com is a fully moderated, social networking community linking lawyers and the public to provide a free and democratic exchange of legal information. President Nancy Kinney explains, “AdviceScene.com was founded on the belief that an effective legal system includes democratizing the law through providing free legal information and advice that everyone can access.” As part of its pledge to donate 5% of advertising revenues to pro bono legal efforts in Canada, AdviceScene has already donated $550 to the Advice-A-Thon event.

Kinney goes on to say that since AdviceScene.com is where Canadian go to get legal questions answered online, the sponsorship of Advice-A-Thon was a natural fit for their values. AdviceScene.com staff will be live blogging on-site and interviewing lawyers and organizers to create a video record of the Victoria event on Friday, September 18, 2009 to be held at Centennial Square...
