NEW HAVEN — The New Haven County Bar’s Ask-A-Lawyer program offers free legal advice to the public.
Attorneys volunteer at local libraries to provide information on all legal matters including car accidents, probate matters, real estate and divorce.
Many legal problems may not be resolved during the initial consultation.
"Fear not," said association Executive Director Carolyn Witt. "If your matter requires more extensive attention, you will be referred to a qualified, prescreened attorney through the Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service."
Using the association’s Lawyer Referral Service generally carries a fee of $35, but the fee is waived for participants of the Ask-A-Lawyer program.
"It’s a win-win for anyone in need of an attorney," said Witt.
The lawyers meet the public at libraries in North Branford, Branford and New Haven.
Ask-A-Lawyer events coming up are Branford: Blackstone Memorial Library, 758 Main St., 6-7:45 p.m. Feb. 18; and Edward Smith Library, 3 Old Post Road, North Branford, 6-7:30 p.m. Feb. 24.
