The Northshore Pro Bono Project of Southeast Louisiana Legal Services will be holding free Ask-A-Lawyer events from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Covington Library, 310 W. 21st Ave.; and from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Oct. 28, at the Slidell Library, 555 Robert Blvd., Slidell.
Participants are welcome to walk in or to call (800) 891-0076, ext. 19, to schedule an appointment. Attorneys will conduct individual 10- to 15-minute conferences. The attorneys have expertise in many areas of civil law and can provide guidance regarding topics such as divorce, custody, wills and successions, power of attorney, interdiction, tutorship, bankruptcy and expungements.
Persons who participate in Ask-A-Lawyer must sign statements verifying they understand that the interviewing attorney will not be opening a case but is simply there to provide some legal guidance and information on additional community resources. For matters that may require full representation, persons may be referred to Southeast Louisiana Legal Services.
