Ask a Lawyer In the Library: Wednesday Wrap-up

Thank you, Mike and Jack!

The Ask A Lawyer In The Library program is a civil, non-family law, self-help program sponsored by The Anne Arundel Bar Association and the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service.  Every Wednesday, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., you can talk with a volunteer attorney for up to 20 minutes.  No appointment is necessary, but sign-up is required at the law library’s information desk.  Sign-up begins at 10:45 a.m., and time slots are determined by a lottery. For more information, please see

On Wednesday, November 5, 2014,  the Law Library hosted another successful Ask A Lawyer In The Library program.  Thank you, Mike Ragland and Jack Paltell, of Bell, Ragland, Gauges & Paltell, for volunteering and providing this service to the public. Four people took part in the program and were able to speak with the attorney to request assistance with issues such as a real estate contract dispute, judgment enforcement and rights to state benefits. The next program date is Wednesday, November 12, 2014.
