Do you have a burning legal question or issue but have been wary of contacting an attorney? Here is your opportunity to get those questions answered! Volunteer attorneys will lead workshops on legal topics and be available for 20 minute one-on-one “Ask-a-Lawyer” sessions.
“Our goal in holding the Legal Fair for Aging Adults is to make it easy to get free legal help,” said Casey Wiegmann, Volunteer Attorney Coordinator from Central Minnesota Legal Services. “Volunteer lawyers will be there to provide individual advice, prepare simple wills and present on interesting legal topics. Many others will get one-on-one advice from an attorney. It promises to be an interesting and informative day.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with a lawyer to write and notarize their own simple will, which does require an appointment.
