Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now.
Experts here cannot actually represent customers, since that's in violation of the site's terms of service and the rules of our bar associations.
Are you just asking where you can find a Chicago attorney?
We are not able to make direct referrals to lawyers or law firms. It's against the site's term of service. What we can do, however, is to direct you to the same referral services that lawyers themselves use when they need to consult with someone from a different state or area of specialization and don't know of anybody. Is that the sort of help you need?
To find a civil lawyer, the best place to start would be with the Illinois Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service. Because it is the state bar association, you know that the lawyer you get will be in good professional standing with his licensing authority. They charge a low fee for the referral, but it includes a free half hour consultation with the attorney. I have linked you to their contact information.
There are also commercial legal referral service. One that has been around for a long time and is highly reputable is Martindale.com. You can search the site by type of lawyer and location. Many of Martindale's lawyers are peer and client rated, which some customers find helpful to narrow down the field.
You initially said that you were looking for help with an expungement. That would be a criminal and not a civil lawyer, but both sites above would still be able to find you an attorney who could do the job.
If you need further information about what sort of lawyer you would need to retain, please give me some general background about your legal matter and I can assist with that.
I probably was unclear.
I understand that this was your case and it was overturned, but what I don't know is what you are needing a lawyer for. If it is an expungement, you could do that yourself without a lawyer but any experienced criminal lawyer should be able to assist you with that.
If it is a civil matter and you're not sure what sort of a lawyer you need to retain, you have to tell me what you hope to accomplish by taking legal action, so that I know how best to try to assist you.
Just checking in to see if you still need help. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
