Cook County residents looking for answers to legal questions concerning their home, chain of title, or other land records can now receive free legal assistance through a new help desk service that will be open to the public each month, Clerk Karen A. Yarbrough announced last week.

The new help desk will assist customers who have legal questions about any of the services provided by the clerk’s Recording Operations Division, which is responsible for recording, storing and maintaining land records and other official documents for all of Chicago and suburban Cook County.
