The Kansas Bar Association and the Topeka Bar Association will be hosting its "Call-a-Lawyer” night on Thursday, March 10. Anyone in need of legal advice is encouraged to call (800) 928-3111 between 6 and 8 p.m. Callers may speak to volunteer lawyers who are donating their time to answer questions and providing legal advice and information.
The volunteers are members of the KBA and/or the TBA and are able to provide information on many legal issues, including probate, family law (such as child custody, divorce, and adoption), landlord-tenant issues and other matters involving real property and employment (such as wrongful termination, workplace conflicts and employment rights).
The KBA Lawyer Referral Service will not charge a fee for making a referral to one of its pre-screened, insured, experienced lawyers. Its lawyers do not offer pro bono — or free — legal services. Each lawyer will determine the fees charged for legal services, and any caller referred should discuss such rates prior to entering into a representation agreement.
"Call-a-Lawyer” repeats the second Thursday (unless specifically noted) of each month and is designed to help persons in need of legal advice and information or answer questions.
