Lawyers and paralegals will provide one hour of time to address any legal issue. This may include family and divorce assistance, personal injury questions, landlord-tenant issues, real estate questions, reviewing contracts, small business questions, advice for people filing or defending small claims cases, etc.
“We view this also as an opportunity to open the doors to the justice system,” Bowman said.
