Talk to a Lawyer Today program set
On Jan. 20, the Indiana State Bar Association, in collaboration with the Indiana Pro Bono Commission, will sponsor “Talk to a Lawyer Today,” a pro bono program to provide legal assistance to the underserved 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. A local hotline will be available for residents in District K — which includes Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Knox, Martin, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Sullivan, Vanderburgh, Vigo and Warrick counties — by calling 812-618-4845 or 888-594-3449 from 10 a.m. to noon EST.
Also, a statewide hotline for both English and Spanish-speaking callers will be available by calling 800-266-2581 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.
