This year the last chance to meet with a volunteer lawyer at Fremont Main will be on Tuesday, November 26. The Lawyer in the Library program resumes on January 28, 2014, the fourth Tuesday of that month. During the break, appointments with volunteer lawyers may still be available in other libraries. Since registration methods vary, be sure to contact the host library beforehand and find out how to register. At Fremont Main, those seeking a 15-minute consultation with a lawyer need to register in person at the Information Desk between 5 and 5:45 p.m. on the day of the program. A lottery at 5:50 p.m. assigns the time of the appointment. The phone number for the Info Desk is (510) 745-1401.
Take a peek at the library’s online Legal Information Resource Center to prepare for a meeting with any lawyer.
