Pro se litigants may contact the District Court Self-Help Assistance Program to provide assistance. The help desk attorney operates by appointment only. Appointments are made at the Clerks Office Intake Desk on the 20th floor or by calling 312-435-5691.
Use of the help desk attorney is not a substitute for an attorney. Below are organizations that may provide free or low-cost legal assistance or a referral to an attorney if you can afford to pay for legal services.
