Program Type:Equity & Inclusion, Finance & Law
Sonoma County Library is pleased to host "Lawyers in the Library," a program providing free legal information and referrals.
Local attorneys will offer free legal information and referral for matters of civil and employment law only. These lawyer consultations will last up to 20 minutes.
The attorneys are volunteers and provide only legal information. They do not provide specific legal advice and should not be considered as personal lawyers for any reason. You will be required to sign a waiver before speaking to an attorney that states that no attorney-client relationship is being created with this free service.
Sign-ups are first come, first served in person and begin at 10 am. ( 30 minutes before the program begins)
No language translation services or interpreters are offered or provided by library staff. Participants must bring their own interpreter if one is needed. Participants may also bring support persons, family members or other affiliated persons to meet with the attorney together. For deaf and hard of hearing participants, the Sonoma County Bar Association will make arrangements for ASL interpretation with at least two days’ advance notice. Please contact Reception@SonomaCountyBar.org or (707) 542-1190 ext. 100 for assistance.
The program is a partnership between the Sonoma County Public Library, the Sonoma County Law Library, and the Sonoma County Bar Association and is staffed by volunteer attorneys.
