ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – The Kane County Law Library and Self Help Legal Center will be growing its successful Lawyer in the Library program through a collaboration with Gail Borden Public Library 270 N. Grove Ave., Elgin, officials announced in a news release.
This month’s Lawyer in the Library will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 25 and the volunteering law firm is Ariano Hardy Ritt Nyuli Richmond Lytle and Goettel P.C.
Volunteering attorneys will be available for 15-minute meetings to assist the public with legal coaching, document review, referrals to other community services, e-filing court documents and legal questions.
The free, walk-in program does not require registration.
Last month, the Doyen Law Group, LLC., pioneered the first Lawyer in the Library which resulted in successfully helping 14 library goers with their legal questions.
Halle Cox, director of the Kane County Law Library and Self Help Legal Center, stated in the release that she was happy to expand the Lawyer in the Library, which is in its ninth year.
“I am excited to take our Lawyer in the Library program on the road and to bring services to people in our community who might otherwise not be able to take advantage of them,” Cox stated in the release.
Library goers attending the walk-in program should bring any paperwork relating to their legal matter.
A Law Librarian and an Illinois JusticeCorps Fellow will also be on hand to guide people through resources and to assist with e-filing court documents.
