Welcome to Lexedia!

This website aims to be the people’s resource about American law.

It is here to help ordinary folks do some of their legal work without a lawyer.

It is here to explain how various legal proceedings work; such as what happens after your son gets a DUI?

It is here to inform and entertain the curious.

It is here to be a legal dictionary and a legal encyclopedia for non lawyers.

The content is written by law school graduates, who may also be practicing lawyers.

The site is supported by advertizing and commissions we earn when you purchase products through the site.   So, if you like a book or product on this site and you buy it through our link, we Thank You!

Most of all, Lexedia exists to help make the law accessible to people.  The American legal system is complex and confusing, and lawyers are expensive.  When you understand the legal situation facing you even just a little bit, you will be less stressed, and you will save some money by being a better consumer of legal services.

So, have a look around, and enjoy your visit!  And if you would like information not covered here, send us an e-mail and let us know!  Your input and feedback will make this an even better site for everyone.
