Free legal aid clinic set for Saturday

Register by Tuesday

Clallam-Jefferson County Pro Bono Lawyers will present a virtual legal aid clinic, a free program offering legal advice for members of the public, from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.

The purpose of this event is to allow local people to address their civil legal issues in one-on-one consultations with volunteer lawyers.

Due to the pandemic, consultations will be offered either by phone or by Zoom conference.

Clients must pre-register for this event by calling 360-504-2422 or by emailing [email protected] or [email protected]; participants are asked to register no later than Tuesday.

Once registered, additional directions for the event date will be provided. Attendees also are encouraged to have relevant legal documents with them during consultation.

Legal aid clinics are geared to help those who are financially unable to otherwise access a lawyer. Attorney volunteers will be available to answer legal questions, direct people to local services that might be able to assist them and to explain the legal process to them.

For more information, contact Shauna Rogers McClain at 360-504-2422 or [email protected], or Mary Margolis at 360-504-2422 or probono [email protected].
