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 Land of Lincoln Legal Aid and Prairie State Legal Services in the Third Judicial Circuit (Bond and Madison Counties), Sixth Judicial Circuit (DeWitt, Douglas, Champaign, Macon, Moultrie and Piatt Counties) and Tenth Judicial Circuit (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. Learn more at www.IllinoisLegalAid.org »
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.
