Pamela Sakowicz Menaker, Communications Partner at Clifford Law Offices, will be the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) attorney representative who will be handling Skype calls from across the state out of the Chicago ISBA office.
Anyone in Illinois with a question about a legal matter can consult a lawyer – at no cost – during the 34th Annual Ask-a-Lawyer Day, Saturday, April 25, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event is sponsored by the ISBA in cooperation with bar associations in Cook, DuPage, Lake and Will counties.
Volunteer lawyers will be standing by to provide general information about consumer problems, family law, estate planning, personal injury and other common legal issues. Callers will be given information about their legal difficulties, which may include consulting with another lawyer on the caller’s specific legal situation.
In addition to two toll-free numbers, the public can email their questions or discuss their legal problem with Menaker using Skype. She will be the attorney representative who will be handling Skype calls out of the Chicago ISBA office. She is also on the ISBA Public Relations Committee that organized this event. Menaker also was elected to a second term of the Assembly, the organization’s governing body.
Consumers can also contact participating bar associations at their respective phone numbers.
