CITY OF ARCADIA’S LAW DAY OFFERS FREE LEGAL ADVICE
April 2, 2019 – The City of Arcadia in partnership with the Arcadia Chinese Association (ACA) will offer a free Ask-a-Lawyer Program at the Arcadia Public Library, 20 West Duarte Road, on Saturday, April 27th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. as part of the nationwide Law Day celebration. This is the 21st consecutive year that the City and ACA have offered this free public service.
Volunteer attorneys are available to meet with the public and provide them with a free, brief one-on-one consultation on general legal questions. They will provide a summary of legal rights and general advice on a “walk-up” basis, and where appropriate, will refer individuals to the proper legal or governmental organizations. Law Day attorneys are unable to accept any cases from the people they meet.
Law Day attorneys will answer questions on important legal topics, such as: immigration, consumer rights, landlord-tenant issues, insurance issues, property, family law, taxes, estate planning and trusts, general litigation, bankruptcy, government benefits, employee rights, workers’ compensation, personal injury, and other topics. Informational brochures and pamphlets are available as additional legal resources.
Participants are encouraged to bring any information pertinent to their case so the attorney is able to give the most accurate and reliable advice. No reservations are required for this free service and everyone is welcome to attend. Translation services will be available in Mandarin and Cantonese. Other languages may be available.
For more information, please call the City Manager’s Office at 574-5401.
