“By the time the clock struck 10 a.m., we had a line of clients out the door. By the end of the fair we had served nearly 200 clients in a span of about three hours.”
This was Saturday’s free legal fair that I posted about previously. As of Saturday, it was the 2nd largest event in New Mexico — even more than at Albuquerque’s last event! (They saw 175 people in 4 hours. However, Albuquerque is having this year’s event today, and they may beat their earlier and Santa Fe’s current record.)
It’s a mixed thing, though –such a great need for legal assistance and such limited resources people have to help solve some really serious problems.
