Those needing pro bona representation or have questions for an attorney can get the legal help they need at the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library.
Each Wednesday through Dec. 29, the library is hosting free legal aid clinics with Pro Bono Indiana, Inc., for income-qualifying individuals. Pro Bona Indiana can assist with topics such as family law, specialized driving privileges, criminal expungements, wills, and estates. Justin Kingery, assistant head of adult and teen services at the library, said he’s happy the library is the new home of the service.
District E serves Cass, Fulton, Grant, Miami, Pulaski, Tipton, Wabash, and Howard counties, and attorneys in each county partner with Pro Bono Indiana to assist those in need in their respective counties.
While Pro Bono Indiana, Inc., assists with a range of topics, it does not assist with legal issues relating to small claims, lawsuits, fee-generating cases, evictions, or criminal matters.
Appointments are required and can be made by calling 765-450-9524. The clinics take place Wednesdays from 9 to 12 p.m. at the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library main branch, 220 N. Union St., in the second floor study room.
