The IRP system screens clients for eligibility and, if qualified, allows them to post a question to a private messaging system. The questions are answered by private attorneys volunteering their time. An IRP client has the ability to check the system for answers at any time or schedule a real time chat session with an attorney. Both the client and the attorney remain anonymous to insure complete privacy.
