Do you need legal advice but cannot afford an attorney?
The Madison County legal community is offering free legal advice to low-income residents seeking to represent themselves in court or who have legal questions. The clinics were organized by the Third Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee. The committee is a partnership between the court system, the Madison County Bar Association, Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance Corporation, the Public Interest Law Initiative, and local attorneys to more effectively deliver pro bono services to low-income families, the disabled and other vulnerable persons within the Madison County community.

Appointments are available on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. Appointments will be scheduled on family law issues between 9 a.m. to noon. Afternoon appointments can be made on any general civil issue between the hours of 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.
