Welcome to LCA. If you would like to obtain legal help, please click on Legal Services and read the information. We offer legal help on arts-related matters only and provide assistance in many, but not all, areas of law.
To apply for help, the first step is to complete a client application. We will review it and contact you to schedule an appointment or you can call us directly. Note that we can arrange phone appointments for those outside the Chicago area and for less complicated matters. Please do not drop-in without an appointment.
If you are not sure whether you are in the right place or if you have questions before applying, simply call our office. Even if we are not able to help, we may be able to point you in the right direction.
LCA is a resource for all individuals and organizations in art, media, and entertainment. We would be happy to help any of your friends and associates, so please pass on the good word that legal assistance is available.
