IndyBar: Indianapolis Bar Association Launches Chat Legal Advice



In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Indianapolis Bar Association (IndyBar) launched the “Virtual Ask a Lawyer” legal advice chat service, where community members can chat in real time with a lawyer who is ready to help with basic legal matters.

To start chatting, just visit Once on the page, a pop-up window in the lower right corner of the browser window will guide the user through the interaction.

Lawyers participating in Virtual Ask a Lawyer work in law firms, agencies and organizations across the city and volunteer their time to provide this valuable community service. They’ll be ready to answer questions on topics like divorce, child custody, child support, landlord-tenant issues, bankruptcy, personal injury, employment law and more. All correspondence is confidential.

The chat service will be available Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (excluding holidays). At other times or in the event that a lawyer is not available, community members can provide their email address for follow-up by a lawyer within 12-24 hours.

For those without internet access, telephone support is also available by calling 317-269-2000.
