Legal Volunteers of Southeast Indiana, Inc., will sponsor “Talk to a Lawyer Today,” providing legal assistance to the underserved Monday, Jan. 21, as an annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This program is for Dearborn, Fayette, Franklin, Jefferson, Ohio, Ripley, Switzerland, Union and Wayne counties.

This is an opportunity for local attorneys to offer free legal consultations to the general public who might not otherwise be able to afford an attorney, said Frank Cardis, one of the participating attorneys.

Legal Volunteers will be offering a telephone hotline. The local hotline will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The call in numbers are 1-877-237-0123 or 1-812-537-0123.

This is the 7th annual program in which Legal Volunteers of Southeast Indiana has participated. Attorneys will provide a 10 to 15 minute consultation to answer general questions and offer legal information for those who utilize this service.

A statewide hotline will be available for both English and Spanish-speaking callers by calling 1-800-266-2581 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Meanwhile, later Monday, folks can participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day March and Program in downtown Lawrenceburg. The march starts at 4:30  p.m. and is tentatively set to go from Central Elementary to Union Valley Missionary Baptist Church. The program begins at the church at about 5 p.m.
