Hoosiers needing answers to legal questions are invited to a free legal consultation during the Indiana State Bar Association’s annual “Talk to a Lawyer Today” on Monday, Jan. 17.

Consultations are provided in-person throughout the state or via local county hotlines.

Individuals will speak with a licensed attorney volunteering their time and experience during 10- to 15-minute consultations to answer general questions and offer legal information.

In light of the pandemic, attorneys are especially prepared to speak with callers about landlord-tenant issues, expungement, bankruptcy and various other areas of law. Other topics Hoosiers can discuss include child support, complaints again a city, contract disputes, divorce, employment issues, immigration and wills and estates.

Members of the ISBA donate their time for this once-a-year program as a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The program is an opportunity for attorneys statewide to provide free legal consultations to members of the general public who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

Walk-in locations and call-in phone numbers will be published at www.inbar.org/consultation.

Founded in 1896, the Indiana State Bar Association is the single largest legal organization in the state. The ISBA serves and advocates on behalf of its members, their clients and the public interest as the independent voice of the legal profession. The ISBA’s office is located in downtown Indianapolis.
