Deadline nears for free legal aid clinic

Posted

Clallam-Jefferson County Pro Bono Lawyers will present a virtual legal aid clinic later this month.

The clinic is a free program that offers legal advice for members of the public; it is planned for Saturday,
Feb. 27.

The event will give local residents the chance to address their civil legal issues in one-on-one consultations with volunteer lawyers. 

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

Legal aid clinics are geared to help those who are financially unable to otherwise access a lawyer. Attorney volunteers will be available from 10 a.m. to noon to answer legal questions, direct people to local services that might be able to assist them, and to explain the legal process to them.

The event is the group’s first clinic in several months, and demand for the clinic is expected to be high. Clients must pre-register by calling 360-504-2422 or by emailing probonolawyers@gmail.com or probonomary@gmail.com.

People are asked to register no later than Thursday, Feb. 18. Once registered, additional directions for the event date will be provided. Attendees are also encouraged to have relevant legal documents with them during their consultation.

For more information, contact Shauna Rogers McClain at 360-504-2422, or email probonolawyers@gmail.com, or Mary Margolis at 360-504-2422, probonoMary@gmail.com.
