Hundreds line up for free civil legal help in Frederick

Pro Bono Day in Frederick attracted hundreds of people for help with their civil legal problems, the Frederick News-Post reported last week.

“The Frederick County Legal Aid Bureau recently offered free legal advice to anyone in need” the article said. “It was standing-room-only when the event kicked off Thursday afternoon.

“More than 40 lawyers and legal assistants offered 20-minute sessions to those looking for legal advice,” the article continued.

“Scheduling short sessions allows more people to receive services, but if a person requires more attention, Legal Aid finds a way to meet the need, said Nina Shore, Maryland Legal Aid’s chief attorney.

“Advice about foreclosures, bankruptcy and housing topped this year’s lists of legal counsel requests, according to Shore, who said the event would not be possible without volunteers.”
