Virtual Ask a Lawyer

In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Indianapolis Bar Association has launched the “Virtual Ask a Lawyer” online legal advice chat service, where you can chat in real time with an attorney who is prepared to assist with basic legal questions. 

Chat now!

To begin the chat, click the dark blue chat bubble in the bottom right corner of this page.

The chat service will be manned during daytime hours. During other times or in the event that an attorney isn’t available, you can provide your email address for follow up by an attorney within 12 to 24 hours. 

For individuals without access to the internet, phone-based assistance is also available by calling 317-269-2000.

Monthly Extended Chat Hours
Once a month, the legal chat and call-in service will be available for extended hours during the IndyBar's Legal Line program. Calls and chats will be answered until 8 p.m. on August 11, September 8, October 13 and November 10, 2020.
