Hoosiers can get free legal help during ISBA’s ‘Talk to a Lawyer Today’

 

INDIANAPOLIS (Nov. 27, 2018) – Indiana residents will have access to free legal consultation during the Indiana State Bar Association’s annual “Talk to a Lawyer Today” on Jan. 21, 2019.


Individuals will have a chance to speak with one of the more than 200 attorneys who are volunteering their time and expertise during 10- to 15-minute consultations to answer general questions and offer legal information. Consultations will be available at numerous walk-in locations throughout the state or by phone at 800-266-2581 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Jan. 21.


Walk-in locations and hours will be announced at a later date.


“Indiana attorneys have a great tradition of providing pro bono assistance throughout the year, and the Indiana State Bar Association is certainly proud of all of our volunteers who will offer their time and expertise on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to offer legal aid to underserved Hoosiers,” ISBA President J. Todd Spurgeon said.


In January 2018, about 350 attorneys volunteered statewide to help more than 1,300 Hoosiers seeking legal aid.


Established in 2002, “Talk to a Lawyer Today” is an annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The pro bono program provides legal assistance to those in need by offering free legal consultations to members of the general public who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.


Attorneys interested in volunteering during the event can contact Kim Latimore at klatimore@inbar.org.
