Public Interest Law Initiative

Conflict of Interest Pro Bono Referral Panel

The Conflict of Interest Pro Bono Referral Panel provides a referral source for participating legal aid agencies to send potential clients who have been denied service due to a conflict of interest. This program is currently accepting referrals from Prairie State Legal Services’ Peoria office and serves potential clients who reside or have a legal issue in Marshall, Peoria, Stark and Tazewell Counties.

A potential client is only eligible for referral to the program if they have been denied services by a participating legal aid agency due to a conflict and the potential client has been referred to the program by Prairie State. If you are a client looking for services, you must first reach out to your local legal aid office for assistance.

Only civil legal matters that are not fee generating are eligible for possible placement through this program. To be eligible for referral to a pro bono attorney through this program, a prospective client must be at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

This program is in the pilot phase. As more counties are added to the program, we will include the information here.
