No. We will make an appointment for you at a future time, often within the week. You will need to return to the law library on your scheduled date and time to meet with the lawyer in one of our conference rooms.
Yes, but there is a $10 cash only deposit required. You will get your $10 back when you meet with the lawyer.
All volunteering lawyers are licensed to practice law in the state of Illinois. Volunteers currently include members of the Kane County Bar Association and Administer Justice (a local legal aid agency).
The lawyer will let you know what you may realistically expect to happen in your case. He/she may review any papers/forms you'd like to give to the court, refer you to other community services and programs that may help with your issue, and let you know what you should do next.
The lawyer will not go to court for you or be your lawyer. This service is limited to what the lawyer talks to you about in your meeting.
Bring all paperwork that relates to the legal issue to discuss along with a notepad and pen to write down what the lawyer tells you to do.
