The Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) will sponsor “Talk to a Lawyer Today,” a pro bono program to provide free legal assistance to the underserved on Monday, Jan. 15, as an annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The program is an opportunity for attorneys statewide to offer free legal consultations to members of the general public who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney. A total of 23 walk-in sites and 7 local hotlines will be available for the public on Monday, Jan. 15. Click here for a comprehensive list of locations.
Established in 2002, “Talk to a Lawyer Today” is expected to have more than 200 attorneys providing 10 to 15 minute consultations to answer general questions and offer legal information for those who utilize this service.
In addition to numerous walk-in site locations across the state, a statewide hotline for callers will be available by calling 1-800-266-2581 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Spanish-speaking callers can call the same hotline from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. for assistance.
