CHICAGO, July 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Access Legal Care, an award-winning law firm that provides free legal advice and affordable legal help at 40-60% savings to lower and moderate income people, has expanded into Illinois.

Serving Illinois from its Oak Park headquarters office and several attorney satellite offices, Access Legal Care LLC utilizes only Illinois-licensed attorneys to deliver and supervise all Illinois cases.
The firm offers services in many legal areas including: family (e.g. divorce & custody), probate (e.g. estate administration, wills, trusts, & guardianships); property (e.g. landlord/tenant & deeds); civil lawsuits; criminal & traffic; creditor & debtor; bankruptcy; trademark and copyright; QDROs; small business and non-profit start-up and assistance; and others.
