  • Probate Law covers wills, trusts, and estates. First and Third Wednesdays 5-7 p.m.
  • General Law covers most civil law matters not covered by Family or Probate Law; such as traffic tickets, employment law, landlord and tenant issues, contract disputes, etc. Wednesdays 5-7 p.m.
  • Landlord Tenant Law covers matters dealing with leases, evictions, utility shutoffs, tenants' rights, and other rental-related legal issues. Last Wednesdays 5-7 p.m.

How the Lawyer in the Library program works:

  • You will attend the program via Zoom on your phone, tablet, or computer. If you don't know how to use Zoom, please contact the Law Library for assistance.
  • Please be aware that you may be seen any time between 5 and 7 p.m. Please plan for a wait.
  • For safety reasons, you cannot attend the program while driving.
  • Program registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis beginning on Thursdays at 9:00 AM.
  • If you are unable to attend, please notify us immediately so we can open the spot up for others in need.
  • The attorneys are volunteers; you are not their client; there is no attorney-client relationship and they cannot represent you. After your appointment, do not contact them about your case.
  • The volunteer attorney cannot help you fill out forms. If you need help filling out forms, we can provide you with information about forms clinics. If you just have procedural questions, Law Library staff may be able to assist you.
