Legal Aid @ the Library
Main Library
Tuesday, Aug. 12, 4:30 pm
Legal Aid @ the Libr

The Legal Aid Society and Nashville Pro Bono Program provide a place for you to go to talk with a lawyer. The lawyer will provide advice to you about your problem. The help is free. But we can’t help with criminal cases. These clinics are held on the second Tuesday of every month beginning at 4:30 pm.

Have papers about your legal problems? Bring them. Someone will ask you about your legal problem. They will also ask about your income. But you don’t have to have a certain income to get advice. Then you will meet with a lawyer. How many people can talk to a lawyer depends on how many lawyers come AND how many people come.

Sponsored by Legal Aid Society and Nashville Pro Bono Program.
