The Community Outreach and Diversity Committee of the Lake County Bar Association will hold a free virtual legal advice clinic via Zoom on Thursday, May 20, from 4:00 PM -- 6:00PM. Participants can speak confidentially with an attorney via video. "For many years, the LCBA hosted an annual Ask-a-Lawyer event. When the pandemic cancelled this event for 2020, we saw an opportunity to revamp and expand this program, stated Karissa Anderson, Chair of the Community Outreach and Diversity Committee. "Using Zoom, we have been able to hold quarterly call-in clinics to provide multiple opportunities for members of our community to connect with an attorney for free to ask questions they may have regarding their circumstances in a no-stress, no pressure environment" Anderson said.

Experienced attorneys will be available to speak with participants and provide free legal advice in the following areas of law: Eviction, Immigration, Family Law, Traffic Defense, Driver's License Reinstatement. Attorneys will also be available to answer general questions regarding accessing and navigating remote court proceedings and E-filings.


Anyone interested in legal advice in any of these areas can participate in the Zoom session by logging in at Meeting ID# 961 1070 3150, between the hours of 4 pm -- 6 pm, on Thursday May 20, 2021.
