Yes. The Students' Attorney, Ed McKibbin, is a licensed attorney.
Can I just ask a simple question over the phone?
No. In order for our attorney to help you, an appointment must be made by the student with the question.
Will the attorney accompany me to court?
No. The attorney will counsel and advise you on the respective issue, but will not be representing you in court. However, the attorney will attempt to facilitate the process of obtaining counsel to represent you if needed.
Do you charge for your services?
No. This program is free as a service to the students; however, the program will not cover the payment of court costs, fees incidental to litigation, fines, penalties, or amounts of any judgments awarded against the student.
Who can use the service?
Anyone who has a legal problem, provided they're a currently enrolled as a student at Illinois State.
