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, Sept. 25.
Consultations from attorney volunteers will be offered via telephone or Zoom, helping 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 group is offering three types of service for the event:
• In partnership with the Clallam Public Defender’s Office, there will be consultations available for people who have been impacted by the Blake Decision regarding possession of controlled substance convictions. (The decision will in some cases allow those with Clallam County criminal history of drug possession to get their records expunged.)
• Public defense lawyers and volunteer attorneys will assist individuals withapplying for relief from legal financial obligations for Clallam County criminal convictions of all types.
• Attorneys will be available for consultations for civil law matters, such as family, landlord/tenant, estate planning and other issues.
Clients must pre-register for this event by calling 360-504-2422 or by emailing to email@example.com. People are asked to register no later than Wednesday, Sept. 15.
Once registered, additional directions for the event will be provided. Attendees are also encouraged to have relevant legal documents with them during consultation(s).
