Free legal aid clinic set for Oct. 23

The 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.-noon on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Clients must pre-register for this event by calling 360-504-2422 or by emailing to probonolawyers@gmail.com; people are asked to register no later than Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Consultations will be offered via telephone or Zoom.

In partnership with the Clallam Public Defender’s Office, organizers say consultations will be available for people who have been impacted by the Blake Decision regarding possession of controlled substance convictions.

Also, public defense lawyers and volunteer attorneys will assist individuals with applying for relief from legal financial obligations for Clallam County criminal convictions of all types.

In addition, attorneys will be available for consultations for civil law matters (family, landlord/tenant, estate planning, etc.).

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.

Attendees are also encouraged to have relevant legal documents with them during consultation(s).

Once registered, additional directions for the event will be provided.

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