    Door County attorneys participate in hometown hotline

    MADISON, November 14, 2002 - As part of the State Bar's Lawyer Hotline program, several local attorneys volunteered to provide free legal advice to citizens from throughout Wisconsin during a recent "hometown hotline" held in Sturgeon Bay.

    Attorneys Victor Brooks (Brooks & Moeller SC), Steve Kase (Baylake Bank), Jennifer Moeller (Brooks & Moeller SC), Thomas Reynolds (Reynolds Law Office) and Charles Wingrove (Brooks & Moeller SC) assisted the callers by answering simple legal questions and providing general legal information during the hotline session.

    "This is truly a meaningful service that the State Bar is able to provide through the assistance and cooperation of volunteer attorneys," said Shell Goar, hotline coordinator. "Anytime we as an association can somehow bridge the gap between attorneys and the public, the opportunity must be utilized."

    The hotline program is a component of the State Bar's Lawyer Referral and Information Service, which provides information, resources and referrals to more than 50,000 consumers seeking legal assistance annually. Most hotline questions involve landlord/tenant, small claims, family law, simple wills, bankruptcy and traffic issues.

    To access the State Bar's Lawyer Referral and Information Service, call (800) 362-9082 or visit www.legalexplorer.com.

    The State Bar of Wisconsin is the mandatory professional association, created by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, for attorneys who hold a law license in Wisconsin. With more than 20,000 members, the State Bar aids the courts in improving the administration of justice, provides continuing legal education for its members, and assists Wisconsin lawyers in carrying out initiatives to educate the public about the legal system.
