ADMINISTRATIVE HEARINGS ADVICE DESK
CARPLS’ Administrative Hearings Self-Help Desk was launched in early 2008. It is located on the first floor of the City of Chicago ’s Department of Administrative Hearings, at 400 W. Superior, in Chicago. The Desk is designed to provide information and legal advice to the many pro se respondents facing ordinance violations issued by the City of Chicago. This includes building code violations and car impoundments. The Desk is staffed by two CARPLS attorneys on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM. Clients are assisted on a first come, first served basis. Services at the Desk are free to low- and middle-income residents of Cook County.
