SPRINGFIELD – Anyone in Illinois with a question about a legal matter can call and talk to a lawyer – at no cost – on Ask A Lawyer Day, Saturday, April 30.
 
Lawyer volunteers will answer phones at six locations from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Any Illinois resident can call toll-free, or a local number in some areas, for a free phone consultation with a lawyer.
 
The 30th annual Ask A Lawyer Day, part of Law Day activities in Illinois, is a public service sponsored by the Illinois State Bar Association in cooperation with bar associations in Chicago, Northwest Suburbs, DuPage County, Lake County and Will County.
 
Lawyer volunteers will be able to answer questions about consumer problems, family law, estate planning, personal injury, or any other legal situations affecting individuals.
 
Callers will be advised of steps they can take to resolve their legal problems and, if they need additional legal services, they will be advised to see their lawyer. If they don’t have a lawyer, they can receive a referral to a lawyer who practices in their area through the referral service offered by participating bar associations.
