Free legal aid phone clinic planned


Legal Aid is conducting a free phone clinic for residents of its eight-county district from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

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

The program is for low-income residents and uses local attorneys who volunteer to offer legal consultation and advice.

Individuals can expect a brief consultation to answer general questions, offer legal information or receive limited pro se assistance or advice over the phone.

A volunteer attorney will return a call to registered individuals between 3 and 5:30 p.m. Individuals must be available within that time frame to answer a call from an attorney.

Legal Aid will be offering additional phone clinics throughout the service region. The next clinic is Sept. 22 with the same registration requirements and time frame.

Legal Aid is a nonprofit agency providing free civil legal services, attorney referrals and domestic violence-related legal representation to low-income individuals in Pro Bono District I. Legal Aid serves Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Rush and Shelby counties.
