Counsel on Call

GET FREE LEGAL Information

Counsel on Call is a pro bono program which gives self-represented litigants an opportunity to discuss legal matters with volunteer attorneys. Participants are assisted on a first come first served basis and will be limited to a 15 minute conference with the volunteer attorney. Please be advised, these attorneys do not represent you as counsel in court. All participants will be required to review and sign a disclaimer. The program occurs 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. The office opens at 8:30 AM and participants are advised to arrive early. There are only 8-12 spots each Friday depending on the number of volenteer attorneys. Unfortunately, you may not preregister in advance and you must be present in person to recieve assistance. Please note: Due to the high volume of people needing legal aid, you are limited to participating in the program once a month.

If you are an attorney who wishes to volunteer for Counsel on Call, please contact Dani by email or by calling the office at (337)237-4700.
