CASL works with Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS) to acquire volunteer attorneys from various law firms and government agencies. Any attorneys interested in volunteering with CASL must first register with CVLS.
Volunteer attorneys provide FREE legal consultation for walk-in clients on matters such as family law, real estate, landlord-tenant, immigration, housing, contracts, consumer fraud, employment, landlord-tenant, probate, estate and healthcare planning, collections, some criminal and torts, and violations of municipal and regulatory law.
Law students from the area conduct client intake, help with legal research and interpret between attorneys and clients to facilitate consultation if needed. Should a case escalate beyond our volunteer attorneys, CASL will work with CVLS to connect clients to private attorneys that may require fees.
At this time, CASL’s Legal Services is operating remotely. Call 312.791.0418 for assistance.
