The Lawyer Referral Service is a self-referral request service, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  This is not a Pro Bono(free) lawyer service. If you are looking to consult an attorney, use the button below to fill out your information and request information. You will then be provided the name of a KCBA member attorney with whom you can make an appointment to discuss your legal problem. You are not obligated to hire the referred attorney nor is the attorney obligated to accept you as a client.

Please keep in mind that the attorneys in the referral service are private attorneys; they set their own fees and make their own arrangements for payments.

Depending on availability, referrals may be made to attorneys that practice in the following counties: Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will.

When speaking with the KCBA staff please understand we cannot answer legal questions and are not attorneys.
