The Indiana Bar Foundation is not an active legal practice. There are no attorneys in our office that take cases or offer legal advice in person, over the phone or by email. The Foundation does not have a list of pro bono (free) attorneys and will not recommend specific attorneys or law firms. For a list of the pro bono and legal aid providers in your area, go to this link.
To post a question online for an attorney's advice, go to Indiana Legal Answers. Some conditions apply.

The Indiana Appellate Pro Bono Project is a collaboration of the Indiana Pro Bono Commission and the Indiana State Bar Association Appellate Practice Section’s Pro Bono Subcommittee. The Project helps low-income people find a pro bono (free) lawyer to represent them on appeal in civil cases. Fill out the application at http://www.in.gov/judiciary/probono/2335.htm or here and send it to email@example.com or 615 N. Alabama Street, Suite 122, Indianapolis, IN 46204. After you apply the Indiana Pro Bono Commission will review your application for income eligibility. If you are eligible, the ISBA Appellate Practice Section’s pro bono committee will review your application and attempt to find a lawyer able to take your case. The Project cannot guarantee that it can find a pro bono attorney to take your case.
A directory of pro bono and legal aid providers by county can be found here. If you want to proceed “pro se” (without a lawyer), there are forms, rules, and other resources online:
