CHICAGO, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- For the first time, Illinois State Bar Association's (ISBA) 33rd Annual Ask-a-Lawyer Day will use Skype as an added form of communication. The event will be held on Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 9 a.m. to noon. Residents of Illinois with a question about a legal matter are invited to talk to a lawyer at no cost to them.
Lawyers will be accessible via a phone call, email and Skype.

Menaker is on the ISBA Public Relations Committee that organized this annual event. She was also elected to a second three-year term of the Assembly, the organization's governing body.
"Ask-a-Lawyer Day is an opportunity for residents of Illinois to get their critical legal questions answered by lawyers who take the time because they care," Menaker said. She added, "Lawyers who are members of the state bar will be volunteering their time that day, both in Chicago and Springfield, and I look forward to participating in the event by helping to guide those in need via Skype."
According to Illinois Law Finder, lawyer volunteers will be standing by to provide general information about consumer problems, family law, estate planning, personal injury and other common legal matters. Callers will be given general information about their legal issues, which might include consulting with another lawyer on the caller's specific problem.
