April 25-27, 2017
State Bar of South Dakota
South Dakotans can get free legal advice from experienced lawyers when the State Bar of South Dakota sponsors the annual Ask-A-Lawyer program April 25-27.
Each call is handled anonymously by experienced attorney volunteers. Last year Ask-A-Lawyer answered over 800 calls from East River to West River South Dakota, ranging from family issues to contracts, wills, real estate, and more.
The calls are not intended to be an in-depth analysis of the caller’s legal concerns, but to answer general legal questions and, if appropriate, refer the caller to specific lawyer referral services or a government agency.
Attorney volunteers will answer calls April 25-27 from 6-9 p.m. MDT and 7-10 p.m. CDT. They will answer calls at locations in Rapid City and Sioux Falls, but can be reached by residents anywhere in the state. West River residents may call toll free 1-877-229-2214. East River residents may call toll-free 1-877-229-2213.
