Description:

The Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) will sponsor “Talk to a Lawyer Today,” a pro bono program to provide legal assistance to the underserved on Monday, Jan. 20, 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.

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 the walk-in locations listed below, a statewide hotline for both English and Spanish-speaking callers will be available by calling 1.800.266.2581 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EST).


Attorney volunteers are still needed to staff 2-hour phone shifts statewide; download a volunteer sign-up form HERE. For questions, please contact Kim Latimore at the ISBA at 800.266.2581 or klatimore@inbar.org.
