A Message from the Section Chair

Refer a Client to the Criminal Modest Means Panel

The IndyBar Modest Means Project provides legal services to persons who do not qualify for other forms of legal assistance or other no fee (pro bono) services, and who cannot afford to pay attorney fees at rates that would ordinarily be charged.

The IndyBar Criminal Modest Means Panel covers all matters related to legal advice and representation in all courts of criminal jurisdiction in Marion Superior Courts, including Traffic Court 13 and Community Court 12. For a person to qualify for a referral to a modest means panel attorney, that person must be referred by a judicial officer of the Marion Superior Court Criminal Division or by an IndyBar attorney member. For more information and the online form, click here.
