Legal Aid offering free phone clinic


Legal Aid is holding a free phone clinic for residents for low-income residents of its eight-county district on Tuesday.

The clinic will be conducted from 3 to 5:30 p.m., and registration is required between noon and 2 p.m. by calling 812-378-0358.

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

Individuals must be available between 3 and 5:30 p.m. to answer a call from an attorney. They can expect to receive a brief consultation to answer general and eviction questions, offer legal information or receive other limited pro se assistance or advice.

Legal Aid will be offering additional phone clinics throughout the service region. The next phone clinic will be Sept. 12 with the same registration requirements and time frame.

The district includes Jackson, Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jennings, Johnson, Rush and Shelby counties.
