Legal Aid planning phone clinic


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 2 p.m. that day.

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 communities who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

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

For information, call Kashmira Mehta at 812-314-2723.
