Lawyer in the Library Wrap-Up for Summer 2022

Jessica Corace, Saul McCormick, Steve Migdal, Jack Paltell and Carole Brown provided pro bono assistance to 20 people this month. Legal questions involved such issues as HOA disputes, expungement, name change, debt collection, car accidents and estate planning. The law library will send registrants information on their topic to review before there session with the attorney. The attorney will receive a copy of the information sent. Oftentimes, links to the law library’s online FAQs can be sent. These FAQs have links to the Maryland Code and Rules, People’s Law Library articles and Maryland Access to Justice department videos. FAQs sent this summer included FAQs for name change, wills and estates and expungement.

 “Ask a Lawyer in the Library” is held every Wednesday of the month from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and on the third Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. You can talk with a volunteer lawyer for at least 20 minutes about your civil, non-family legal problem for free. All sessions are now conducted over Zoom or by phone.

This program is sponsored by Anne Arundel County Local Pro Bono Committee, Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, and the Anne Arundel Bar Association. It is hosted by the Anne Arundel County Public Library.

Register online here or call the law library for help. Once you have registered, you will be sent a link to an intake sheet. Instructions for meeting with the attorney will be sent once the intake is competed.

Contact the library if you have questions: (phone) 410-222-1387 or (email)
