WHAT IS ILLINOIS FREE LEGAL ANSWERS?
Illinois Free Legal Answers is a secure website (IL.freelegalanswers.org) where lower income Illinois residents can ask a lawyer for help with a legal issue. Qualified users post questions about civil legal problems. Volunteer lawyers then log onto the site and select questions to answer. It’s like a virtual walk-in legal clinic. For additional information, click here. PILI is the administrator of the site and our staff will also be available to demonstrate the platform and provide additional resources.
