Kansans who need basic legal answers, advice, and information are encouraged to call the Kansas Bar Association (KBA) ‘s free monthly “Call-A-Lawyer” public service program from 6:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Thursday August 12 at 1-800- 928-3111.
KBA volunteer lawyers can provide information on many legal matters including probate, family law (such as child custody, divorce, and adoption), employment issues (such as unfair dismissals, workplace disputes and labor rights), landlord-tenant issues and other issues. involving real estate.
In the event that a caller is referred at a later date to KBA’s lawyer referral service after their free Call-A-Lawyer phone call, there is no charge for the referral. However, the lead lawyer does not provide pro bono (free) legal services and will determine the fees charged for his legal services. The caller should discuss these rates before entering into a legal representation agreement.
If a person is unable to call on August 12, “Call a lawyer” is repeated on the second Thursday of each month.
The KBA is a voluntary professional association of over 5,000 members dedicated to advancing the professionalism of its members, public understanding of the law, and promoting the effective administration of our justice system. For more information on the KBA, visit www.ksbar.org.
