FREE Advice Available at Jeffco Legal Clinics All Year

Every year, a major focus of mine is to devote dozens of hours to pro bono work, giving back to the community and helping anyone who wants it to access legal assistance. One way I do this work is through volunteering at a variety of free legal clinics around Jefferson County each month. The clinics typically allow visitors to attend on a first come, first served basis and to receive 15 minutes of free legal advice on their divorce or family law issue. Please share this information with family and friends who could benefit.

Below is my clinic volunteer calendar for the year, so far. Keep an eye on my Facebook page and under the ALPC Volunteering the Community tab for additional dates and events as they are added.
