The Kane County Bar Association will conduct monthly “Ask A Lawyer Days” during 2013, due to the popularity of the program offered all of last year and which was established during its 150th anniversary celebration a few years ago.

On the second Saturday of each month, members of the public are encouraged to call 630-762-1900 between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon for a free consultation with an attorney volunteer. This public information service (sponsored by the Kane County Bar Association, and supported by the Illinois State Bar Association) is a great opportunity to ask questions and find direction for any legal matters you may have. Last month, dozens of callers were helped with legal problems regarding issues in real estate, landlord/tenant, criminal, estates and wills, divorce, child custody, collections, bankruptcy and traffic.

The next “Ask A Lawyer Day” will be held on Saturday, Feb. 9.  There is a very high call volume, so please keep trying if the phone lines are busy, as volunteers are not able to retrieve messages left on the voice mail.
