CARPLS Cook County Legal Hotline

Monday-Friday, 9am-4:30pm

Each year, we help thousands of people who can’t afford an attorney find answers to their everyday legal problems free of charge. We serve low- and moderate-income residents of Cook County.

Our very experienced hotline attorneys are here to offer solutions, often resolving issues in a single call. CARPLS attorneys give free legal advice; our attorneys do not represent clients in the courtroom.

If you need an attorney to go to court with you, you may qualify for free or reduced-fee services from other legal organizations. Our attorneys will do their best to refer you to such an organization if one is available.

Here are some of the legal issues CARPLS can help you with:

  • Landlord-Tenant
  • Foreclosure
  • Employment
  • Education
  • Consumer Debt
  • Divorce
  • Guardianship
  • Estates
  • Personal Injury
  • Property Damage
  • Public Benefits
  • Health Care
