CARPLS reaches one million free legal consultations provided!

July 22, 2022

We are excited and proud to announce that CARPLS has now surpassed one million consultations provided!

CARPLS, at its core, is a simple service: people can call us and get advice about their legal problem and can move forward in their lives. In the background, however, is a sophisticated network of talented attorneys and legal and social service partners working together to help people in need.

Before the pandemic, one in five Americans may have been eligible for free legal assistance but only half could access important legal resources. Now the demand for free legal help is even greater.

Asghar, who lives on Chicago’s South Side, was CARPLS’ one-millionth consultation!

“I called CARPLS just wondering what I could do [about a landlord issue],” Asghar said. “They really helped me take action to figure out what to do next. I followed the attorney’s advice — she was very encouraging. I would definitely recommend CARPLS to people who have a legal need.”

With our nearly three-decade, technologically driven hotline, we have been able to track each call and conversation since the beginning. Every conversation, like Asghar’s, matter to us.
