Free legal aid clinic planned at Seymour law office

Legal Aid will conduct a free legal aid clinic for low-income residents from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday at Montgomery Elsner and Pardieck LLP, 308 W. Second St., Seymour.

The Legal Aid Clinic and Pro Bono Program utilizes local volunteer attorneys offering free legal consultations to low-income individuals who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

Individuals coming to the clinic can expect to receive a 10-minute consultation to answer general questions, offer legal information or receive other limited pro se assistance or advice in person on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no need to register in advance.

Another clinic is set at the law office at the same time April 3.

Legal Aid is a nonprofit agency providing free civil legal services, lawyer referrals and domestic violence-related legal representation to low-income individuals in Pro Bono District I, covering eight counties in south central Indiana — Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Rush and Shelby.
