Lawyers participate in ‘Talk to a Lawyer Today’ program

Indiana attorneys across the state are using Monday as a way to pay tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. by providing free legal advice to the general public.

The “Talk to a Lawyer Today” event, sponsored by the Indiana State Bar association, was established in 2002. More than 200 attorneys are expected to provide brief consultations with residents who utilize the service. Many of these residents may not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

There are walk-in locations around the state, as well as a statewide hotline – 800-266-2581 – for English and Spanish speakers. Several pro bono districts have also set up local hotlines for residents to call. A list of sites providing legal consultations is available on the ISBA website.
