Chicago Bar Association provides free legal advice

CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Attorneys with the Chicago Bar Association will host a free legal advice hotline this weekend.

The bar association's Call-A-Lawyer program runs Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

Lawyers will be on hand to discuss any type of legal question or issue.

Officials say callers may explain their situations to an attorney who will then suggest self-help strategies.

Callers who require additional assistance will be advised to see their own attorney, hire a lawyer or contact the association's attorney referral service. Officials say the referral service has more than 300 prescreened, qualified lawyers experienced in almost every area of the law.

The hotline number is 312-554-2001.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.
