If you live in the UK, now you can get low-cost advice from lawyers in India. 

A Bob Ambrogi blog post alerted me to UK-based Expert Legal Advice. Consumers buy chunks of time in advance and receive advice by e-mail. The company offering the service is English but the lawyers are in India. Nothing I found on the site suggests that lawyers licensed in the UK supervise the work. (The terms & conditions page was not available when I visited the site.)

I don’t expect to see a service like this in the US as it would probably be the unauthorized practice of law (UPL).
