A project of the American Bar Association, Free Legal Answers is a secure website where low-income Illinoisans can ask a lawyer for help with a civil legal issue. Volunteer lawyers then log onto the site at their convenience and answer questions waiting in the queue. It is a virtual walk-in legal clinic.
PILI became the state administrator for Illinois Free Legal Answers in August of 2019. Each month, PILI will spotlight one law firm or corporation that will host the official “PILI Illinois Free Legal Answers Clinic ” with their attorneys to answering questions on il.freelegalanswers.org. PILI is so grateful to the law firms and corporations who have hosted the PILI Illinois Free Legal Answers Clinics during the first quarter of 2020, including:
- January 30th: McDermott Will & Emery together with the Asian American Bar Association
- February 5th: Deere & Company
- March: Postponed
We look forward to hosting the PILI Illinois Free Legal Answers Clinics over the coming quarter:
- April: State Farm
- May: Haynes and Boone
- June: Paul Hastings
If you have additional questions or are interested in hosting a clinic, please contact PILI Senior Managing Attorney Brent Page by email or by phone at 312-832-5128.
