As part of its ongoing tradition of pro bono and community legal assistance, the Nassau County Bar Association along with Nassau/Suffolk Law Services is inviting all Nassau County residents to a free legal Pro Bono Fair offering free assistance, information and referrals, to be held on Thursday, October 27, in celebration of national Pro Bono Week. Any Nassau resident is invited to come to the Bar Association’s headquarters at the corner of 15th and West Streets in Mineola, between 3 and 7 p.m. with a question and meet with an attorney one-on-one for legal guidance.
Attorneys knowledgeable in many areas of law will be available to meet with residents to provide information and refer them for more assistance if needed. Attorneys will not provide legal representation. Residents are invited to bring their questions about: bankruptcy and consumer debt; divorce and family issues; education and special education; health and disabilities immigration; mortgage foreclosure and housing matters and senior citizen issues.
Registration is required by calling 516-747-4070. In addition, in its efforts to reach all communities on Long Island, bi-lingual attorneys fluent in Spanish, Russian, Haitian Creole, Korean, Chinese, Hindi and many other languages will be present at the Pro Bono Fair upon request when calling to register.
