The Law Library has been busy with the Ask A Lawyer In The Library program. In addition to the weekly courthouse program held in the Anne Arundel County Public Law Library on March 29 and April 5, the monthly evening program at the Eastport-Annapolis Neck Community Library was held on March 28.
Carole Brown, Saul McCormick of Lessans, Praley and McCormick, and Jerry Williams of Patel and Williams were the Eastport-Annapolis Neck Community Library volunteers on March 28 who helped with contracts, debt collection and leases. March 29 was one of the few 5th Wednesdays of the month meaning that attorney Richard Ronay
was on hand to help with such issues as garnishment, reverse mortgages, eviction, sale of real property and deeds. And today, Mike Ragland and Jack Paltell,
both retired, helped with questions on bankruptcy and landlord/tenant. Librarians, Leah Curtis of the Eastport-Annapolis Neck Community Library and Joan Bellistri of the Anne Arundel County Public Law Library were on hand to coordinate and provide back up research assistance.
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. In addition to the weekly program, the Ask A Lawyer In The Library program is held monthly at two Anne Arundel County Public Library branches in the evening (4:30 pm to 6:30 pm): Glen Burnie Regional Library on the 3rd Wednesday and Eastport-Annapolis Neck Community Library on the last Tuesday.
