Anyone in Illinois with a question about a legal matter can consult a lawyer — at no cost — during the 37th annual Ask A Lawyer Day, Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to noon. The event is sponsored by the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) in cooperation with bar associations in Cook, DuPage, and Lake counties.

Volunteer lawyers will be standing by to provide general information about consumer problems, family law, estate planning, personal injury, and other common legal issues.
