DETROIT – Legal Aid and Defender Association, Inc. will conduct a free outreach clinic on civil legal services for income-eligible residents of Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties, including the city of Detroit, at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 26 at the Oakland County Law Library, 1200 N. Telegraph Road, Pontiac.
Attendees are asked to register before 11:00 a.m., as a Legal Aid attorney will assist only those persons who have done so by that time.
For further information, contact Stacey Felder, paralegal at Legal Aid and Defender’s Oakland County office in Pontiac, by phone at (248) 253-1548, ext. 7305 or (877) 964-4700, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Legal Aid and Defender is Michigan’s largest provider of free civil legal services to low-income residents. It serves metropolitan Detroit through its offices in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties. It also represents criminal defendants in Wayne County and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. Including brief consultations and comprehensive legal services, the public law firm handles some 15,000 legal matters yearly.
“We work with clients in a comprehensive manner, so that as we solve their legal problems, we help solve other problems as well,” said Executive Director Deierdre L. Weir. “We help people rebuild their lives and help families stay together.”
A big part of it (the repeater that nothing gets done to them) is what kind of lawyer they can afford. A good lawyer that can get the charges dropped or reduced most of the times is going to cost a lot of money.
