Virtual Free Legal Advice Clinic hosted by the Lake County Bar Association
The Lake County Bar Association’s Diversity and Community Outreach Committee will be hosting a free virtual legal advice clinic via Zoom on Thursday, June 9, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Participants can speak confidentially with a lawyer via Zoom. “Access to justice is important to members of the Lake County Bar Association. We understand that the justice system can be overwhelming for those unfamiliar with it,” said Karissa Anderson, co-chair of the Community Outreach and Diversity Committee. “We started hosting quarterly call-in clinics via Zoom in 2020, when we could no longer run an in-person Ask a Lawyer event. Hosting these clinics via Zoom for the past two years has allowed members of our community to connect with attorneys in a free, stress-free, and pressure-free environment,” Anderson said.
Experienced attorneys will be available to speak with attendees and provide free legal advice in the following areas of law: deportation, immigration, family law, road defense, driver’s license reinstatement and estate planning. Attorneys will also be available to answer general questions regarding access to the court system and the availability of legal resources in Lake County.
Anyone interested in legal advice in any of these areas can join the Zoom session by logging on to https://us06web.zoom.us/j/84693577773 Meeting ID: 846 9357 7773 between 5-7 p.m. , Thursday, June 9, 2022.
