Attendees can also receive free 20-minute legal consultations at Ask-a-Lawyer or check out one of the self-representation clinics on topical issues like surrogacy, divorce, and family law.
If you can’t make it to the event but would still like legal advice, Dial-a-Lawyer offers members of the public free 20-minute legal consultations over the phone! Call 1-888-644-8950 on April 21 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
