Counsel on Call

Counsel on Call is a free program aimed at getting you an opportunity to discuss legal matters with volunteer attorneys.  The pro bono program lets self-represented litigants confer with an attorney for 15 minutes these sessions are conducted on a first come, first serve basis.  It is important to note that these attorneys do not and will not represent you in court, they will only give legal advice.

Counsel on Call takes place every Friday (excluding holidays) from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM at the Lafayette Bar Association in the Lafayette Parish Law Library which is located at 2607 Johnston Street. Due to the high volume of people needing legal advice, you are limited to participating in the program once a month.  If you decide to take advantage of the program you will have to sign a disclaimer.

If you are an attorney who wishes to volunteer for Counsel on Call, please call the LBA staff at (337)237-4700.
