Along with missed paychecks, the current government shutdown brings with it concerns regarding a variety of legal issues for furloughed workers. Furloughed workers in the Indianapolis area will have the opportunity to speak directly with an attorney on landlord/tenant, bankruptcy, mortgage, debtors rights and child support issues arising as a result of the shutdown at a special free legal advice program sponsored by the Indianapolis Bar Association on Tuesday, January 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Furloughed workers can either visit the Indianapolis Bar Association office in downtown Indianapolis or call 317-269-2000 to speak with an attorney at no charge.

Meet with an attorney:

  • Visit the Indianapolis Bar Association office between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • The office is located at 135 N. Pennsylvania Street, Suite 1500 in downtown Indianapolis in the BMO Plaza building at the intersection of Ohio and Pennsylvania streets. Parking is available in the building’s garage, in surrounding garages/surface lots, or in metered street parking spots.

Call in to speak with an attorney:

  • Call 317-269-2000 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The service is limited to furloughed federal workers, and attorneys will be able to address questions related to landlord/tenant issues, mortgage concerns, debtors rights, bankruptcy, and child support.
