How do referrals from Get Legal Help work?

When you use Get Legal Help and ask for a lawyer, you will get a referral to one or more programs or services. These programs might be able to help with your legal issue for free, for a reduced fee, or through a paid service. The referrals that you get are based on the questions you answer about:

  • Your issue
  • Your location
  • Your income level

For example, some programs can only help people with issues like eviction and foreclosure, who live in Cook County, and whose income level is below the federal poverty line. While other programs can help people dealing with domestic abuse, regardless of where in Illinois they live and what their income level is.
