Free Legal Clinic- Pro Bono Day Fall 2012- Saturday, October 20, 2012 9:00- Noon
Post date: Sep 21, 2012 12:31:47 AM
As you well know, the economic downturn has had and will continue to have a significant impact on the residents of Baltimore County and beyond, particularly those in low-income communities. The dramatic increase in the demand for legal assistance from civil legal services organizations statewide is a telling indicator of just how serious the situation has become for many individuals and families. Unfortunately, the demand for these services far outweighs the resources available.
In response to this need, the Baltimore County Bar Association, in partnership with Maryland Legal Aid and Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service is hosting its third Pro Bono Day on Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 9 am to 12 pm at the Randallstown Library Branch located at 8604 Liberty Road, Randallstown, MD 21133.
At this free legal clinic participants can discuss their legal issues in one-on-one consultations with volunteer lawyers in a variety of areas, including landlord-tenant, government benefits, veterans issues, bankruptcy and consumer debt, wills, advance directives and elder law, expungements, foreclosure prevention, and divorce/custody/child support. Organizers of this event encourage people to take advantage of the free legal assistance.
The event is free and no registration is required. Please spread the word far and wide. Your assistance in getting the word out to your community, via the attached flyer, would be greatly appreciated. For more information, contact Yoanna Moisides, Assistant Director of Advocacy for Training and Pro Bono, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
