Attorneys with the Chicago Bar Association’s Call-A-Lawyer program will be available to take calls from the public and offer legal advice on Saturday, May 16 as part of an ongoing legal public service program offered by the bar association.
Calls will be accepted May 16 from 9 a.m. to noon at (312) 554-2001.
The Call-A-Lawyer program enables citizens to call in and explain their situation to an attorney who will then work to suggest self-help strategies or provide advice to help resolve their issues.
If callers need further legal services or have questions beyond the scope of the attorney’s practice area, they will be advised to contact the bar association’s Lawyer Referral Service during the week for a referral to an attorney in the appropriate area of law.
The bar association has more than 200 pre-screened, qualified lawyers experienced in almost every area of law who offer their services to the public, including:
— employment law, including wrongful termination, harassment and discrimination;
— estate planning, including will and trust drafting, probate and will contest;
— domestic relations, including divorce, custody, support and other family law matters;
— personal Injury, including auto accidents, slip and falls, products liability, wrongful death, malpractice and other types of injury cases; and
— real estate, including buying or selling real estate, foreclosure defense and landlord/tenant issues.
