Meet With An Attorney For Free

Parties who are not represented by counsel can meet with an attorney to discuss their elder law or probate matter on a first-come, first-served basis.  Topics may include trusts, estates, wills, guardianships, conservatorships, and powers of attorney.  This is intended to be a one-time informational session with an attorney and does not constitute an attorney-client relationship; parties with complex issues may want to engage the long-term services of an attorney.

When:  Every Monday and Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. (closed on state holidays).  Clinics are subject to the availability of volunteers; cancellations will be posted on this website.
