Free Santa Fe Legal Fair Saturday, October 13, 2012

There are projects around the country to get more lawyers to perform more pro bono (free) services for low-income persons. My local state court’s (1st Judicial District of New Mexico) Local Pro Bono Committee is sponsoring a Santa Fe Legal Fair this Saturday … from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., providing free consultations in many areas of law touching on the lives of regular people, including bankruptcy and foreclosure.

It helps — but we still need to do more to solve the problem.  For now, though, when you are the person in trouble, you want to first get help, and then see to helping others — that’s normal! Like they say on the airplane about the oxygen — first put the mask on  yourself so that you can go on to help others, and then put it around the faces of your children.

SANTA FE LEGAL FAIR, SATURDAY, MAY 7, 2011

There are projects around the country to get more lawyers to perform more pro bono (free) services for low-income persons — for example, my local state court’s (1st Judicial District of New Mexico) Local Pro Bono Committee together with the Santa Fe Community  College is presenting a Santa Fe Legal Fair this Saturday (5/7) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. , providing free consultations in many areas of law touching on the lives of regular people, including bankruptcy and foreclosure.  I’ll be there. But, to me, that does little to solve the problem on a structural level. Still, when you are the person in trouble, you want to first get help, and then see to helping others — that’s normal!

Come Saturday, to the Santa Fe Community College, 6401 South Richards Avenue (the fair will take place near the cafeteria) — it’s on a first-come, first-served basis, and areas for free consultation include:

  • Divorce
  • Child Support
  • Wills/Power of Attorneys
