Lawyer in the Library

Lawyer in the Library

Free legal assistance is provided by a volunteer lawyer. The attorney will consult to define your problem, advise you of your options, get you started with a solution, and make a referral when needed. 

Sign-ups begin one week before the lawyer's appearance. Advance registration is required.

In registering for an appointment, you agree to the following limitations and conditions:

  • Your appointment must be used to talk about your own legal issues.

  • Your appointment is for a maximum 15 minutes. 

  • You must arrive 5 minutes early to check in at the Information Desk to confirm your appointment and sign a release. Latecomers forfeit their appointment.

  • You have not had an appointment within the past six months. A no-show is considered an appointment.

  • You will bring any paperwork pertaining to your case when you come to see the lawyer.

This free consultation is not intended to, and does not establish, a continuing attorney/client relationship.  The volunteer attorney can only provide brief consultation and referrals (as necessary). The volunteer will not represent you in any matter.   

If you agree to these terms, you may ask to sign up at the Information Desk or call 925-803-7252 when the library is open.
