Call A Lawyer
Every Wednesday night, from 7 - 9 pm, The Justice Center offers Call A Lawyer, a free legal clinic where members of the public can call and speak to a lawyer one-on-one about their legal matters. Brief advice (10-30 minutes) is given to each caller.
This clinic is a huge opportunity to bridge the gap in justice access and give two hours of your time to help those in our community without access.
