Do you need an attorney but can’t afford to hire one? You may qualify for the “Lawyer in the Library” program offered at the Kane County Law Library & Self Help Legal Center.
The Law Library is partnering with the Kane County Bar Association and Administer Justice to offer this program to assist qualifying low income individuals with their legal needs. Attorneys are volunteering their time to provide legal services, including legal coaching, document review and referrals.
To qualify for this program, you must visit the Kane County Law Library & Self Help Legal Center in person. You may do this during any hours the law library is open. For those who qualify, you will need to sign a “Certification of Finances” statement and leave a $5.00 cash deposit. You will be given an appointment to meet with an attorney at a later date and your deposit will be refunded at that time.
The Kane County Law Library & Self Help Legal Center is located on the second floor of the Kane County Judicial Center at 37 W. 777 Rt. 38, St. Charles, IL 60174. The hours of service are 8:30am – 4:30pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and 8:30am - 8pm Wednesday. The phone number is 630-406-7126.
