Clinic to offer free legal help, guidance - Washington County, Ohio

Clinic to offer free legal help, guidance

Washington County residents who have legal questions, but who cannot afford to hire an attorney, now have another resource available for legal help and guidance.

Members of the Washington County Bar Association and Southeast Ohio Legal Services are joining forces to offer a free legal advice clinic, starting this Wednesday.

A family of four can earn up to $3,900 monthly and still qualify for the free clinic, Bozian said.

Local, private attorneys will be available to discuss legal issues in confidence with residents from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 320 Second St. Bozian said the goal is to hold the clinic at the same time and location on the third Wednesday of each month.

Sharon Wolboldt, paralegal with Southeastern Ohio Legal Services, said legal advice will be available on a wide array of topics, including landlord/tenant disputes, divorce, custody issues, financial matters, Social Security disability and property loss.
