Macon County Self-Represented Litigant Help Desk Launch and Open House

The Sixth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee, together with the Decatur Bar Association, is hosting an open house to celebrate the launch of the new Self-Represented Litigant Help Desk. Join us for free lunch and to learn more about this new pro bono opportunity!

The Self-Represented Litigant Help Desk is a project of PILI’s Sixth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee. During a 2-hour shift, volunteer attorneys meet with self-represented litigants in civil legal matters for 30-minute appointments to help them understand and navigate the legal process, fill out forms and answer questions. Volunteers are not taking cases or providing representation in court.

The Help Desk will be open from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. twice each month on select Mondays and Wednesdays. The Help Desk is located in the Law Library of the Macon County Courthouse.

If you have any questions, please contact PILI Executive Director Michael Bergmann by email or by phone at 312-832-5129.
