Legal Aid planning free phone clinic


Legal Aid recently announced a free phone clinic for Jackson County residents from 3 to 5:30 p.m. June 9.

Registration is required between noon and 1:30 p.m. that day by calling 812-378-0358. 

The Legal Aid Clinic and Pro Bono program utilizes local volunteer attorneys offering free legal consultations to low-income individuals for the provision of legal advice and assistance in furtherance of equal access to justice within the community who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

Individuals calling the clinic can expect to receive a 10-minute consultation to answer general questions, offer legal information or receive other limited pro se assistance or advice.

An attorney will return a call to registered individuals between 3 and 5:30 p.m.

Legal Aid will be offering additional phone clinics throughout Pro Bono District I on a rotating basis. The next clinic is June 23 with the same registration requirements and time frame.

Legal Aid is a nonprofit agency providing free civil legal services, attorney referrals and legal clinics to low-income individuals in Pro Bono District I, serving residents of Jackson, Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jennings, Johnson, Rush and Shelby counties.
