LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Got legal questions? Then get them answered!
Wabash Valley Volunteer Attorneys and the Indiana Bar Foundation are hosting "Talk to a Lawyer Day."
The program offers free legal assistance for low-income individuals as a part of pro-bono week.
Anyone can attend and ask general questions about the legal system or even personal cases.
Tim Peterson, Chief Plan Administrator for Wabash Valley Volunteer Attorneys, said the goal of the program is to make people more aware of their rights.
"A lot of people don't really understand what their rights are under the law. They may think that they have no rights under the law," Peterson said.
Peterson also told News 18 it's best for people to come to the event with simple questions for the lawyers.
"Like, 'Do I need a will?' 'Can I get my criminal record expunged?' 'How do I get a hardship drivers license?' 'What do I do to get my visitation back?' Things of that nature."
Talk to a Lawyer Day will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Crawfordsville District Public Library.
There will be an additional session on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Ivy Tech Lafayette campus.
Peterson said if you do plan to ask questions based upon a proceeding you are a part of, to bring any documents pertaining to that proceeding as well as a driving record and identification card.
