Lawyer in the Library

Need an attorney but can’t afford one?  Trying to muddle through the legal maze yourself?  Pay a visit to the Kane County Law Library & Self Help Legal Center to see if you qualify for a “Lawyer in the Library

The Kane County Law Library & Self Help Legal Center in partnership with Administer Justice and the Kane County Bar Association have created a program to assist qualifying low income individuals with their Kane County legal needs.  Attorneys volunteer their time to provide legal coaching, document review, and  referrals for qualifying individuals.

To see if you meet the specific criteria for assistance, you must visit the Kane County Law Library & Self Help Legal Center in person.  You may stop by to see if you qualify any time the law library is open.  If you meet the criteria, you will be required to sign a “Certification of Finances” statement and leave a $5 cash deposit. You will then be scheduled to meet with an attorney at a later date.  When you meet with the attorney your $5 will be refunded.
