Free Santa Fe Legal Fair Saturday, October 22, 2011

It’s the next sponsored by the 1st Judicial District Court (which covers Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos counties) Pro Bono Committee.  The previous one was in May, see this link: Free Legal Fair!

As I said there:

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 … is presenting 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.  I’ll be there. But, to me, that does little to solve the problem on a structural level and, as a society, we need to do more. Still, 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.

This Legal Fair is at the Mary Ester Gonzales Senior Center in Santa Fe — click for the flyer for directions and more details: October 2011 LF Flyer.
