NEW! Attorney Help Desk

Post Date:11/14/2019 4:00 PM

On Monday, November 18, 2019, the McHenry County Bar Association is launching a new Attorney Help Desk program to assist pro-se litigants on a first come, first serve basis. Volunteer attorneys will offer unrepresented court patrons procedural guidance.   These attorneys will be available in the second floor rotunda of the Courthouse on Mondays between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.

Interested court patrons are encouraged to sign-up by 9:30 a.m. to make sure there will be an attorney available to speak with them. Only 15-minute appointments are available.  If there is no one else waiting at 10:30 a.m., the volunteer attorneys will leave.  The volunteer attorneys will not assist with traffic, misdemeanor, felony or juvenile offenses.
