Connecticut Bar Association to Offer Free Legal Advice Clinics
Two of the most wonderful words in the English language are Pro Bono. The whole phrase is Pro Bono Publico, which is a Latin term translating to "for the public good". In legal terms, pro bono means "the offering of free services", and with the rising costs of basically everything in this world, it's a blessing to receive free anything.
I've had to retain the services of an attorney multiple times in my life, you never know what curveballs life will throw at you. Luckily, a few of my close friends happen to be lawyers, but there have been times that I've been in a situation where I've needed legal advice, and had no one to answer my questions. If you're facing a situation where you need some Pro Bono legal advice, there's a two day event here in Connecticut that you should know about.
The Connecticut Bar Association will be offering two free legal advice clinics on January 25 and 26, 2022, where you'll be able to sign up for a free virtual 30 minute session with a volunteer attorney. You will have the opportunity to ask questions about any of these practice areas: Family Law, Tax Law, Bankruptcy, Landlord/Tenant, Immigration Law, Employee Rights/Unemployment, Pardons, and Fraudulent Business/Debt Collection.
It's important to note that the volunteer attorney that you will speak with will not continue to represent you, file documents in court, or go to court with you.
