This past Saturday, April 25th, Pamela Sakowicz Menaker was the attorney representative for the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) during their 34th Annual “Ask-a-Lawyer” Day. Menaker is the Communications Partner for Clifford Law Offices. She handled calls through Skype from consumers across the state of Illinois from 9 am to 2 pm. In addition to the Skype platform there were two toll free hotlines and an email address that ISBA volunteers managed during the day to help answer questions. The no cost event was open to anyone who had a legal question and needed to consult with a lawyer. The ISBA sponsored event cooperated with the following associations located in counties: Cook, DuPage, Lake, and Will. These bar associations helped to provide a lawyer through their referral service for consumers who needed legal help. The initial legal consultation meeting is set at a nominal fee.
