Indiana Residents: Free legal advice Jan. 21

I caught this in today's Muncie Star-Press, Attorneys to offer free advice Jan. 21:

The Indiana State Bar Association will sponsor "Talk to a Lawyer Today," a pro bono program to provide legal assistance to the underserved, on Monday, Jan. 21 as an annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The program is an opportunity for attorneys statewide to offer free legal consultations to members of the general public who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

Attorneys will provide a 10- to 15-minute consultation to answer general questions and offer general legal information for those who use this service.

The program will be offered locally on Jan. 21 at these sites:
  • Delaware County: Vivian Conley Library, 1824 E. Centennial Ave., Muncie, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
  • Grant County: Clarence Faulkner Community Center, 1221 W. 12th St., Marion, 9 a.m.-noon.
  • Henry County: First United Methodist Church, 1324 Church St., New Castle, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Madison County: Mounds Mall, 2109 S. Scatterfield Road, Anderson, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

    In addition to the district site locations, the public can call a statewide hotline, 1-800-266-2581 between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
