South Dakotans can get free legal advice from experienced lawyers when the State Bar of South Dakota sponsors the annual Ask-A-Lawyer program May 1-3, 2018.

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 May 1-3 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.

  2. hi! I am in need of legal advice. This is in regards to our family issue. my mother wants to get our assets (house and lot) that is originally owned by my grandparents. our case has been going on for almost 3 years now. I dont know why it had went this far because my mother's side just go to the court for like once or twice a year however my grandparents go to court every trial. they always say that our case will be dismissed but until now its not. its really difficult because were just family but this is how it goes. I just want us to win. Im not in favor with my mother.we have all of the documents needed and all the evidence to prove its ours but they wont dismiss our case.
