In my job as assessor, I've spoken to people from all corners of Berwyn. One need that many of them share is access to legal advice to help deal with the many issues of law that come up in everyday life.
To address this problem, I'm working with Mayor Robert Lovero and Township Supervisor Elizabeth Pechous to host a free legal clinic for Berwyn residents.
The clinic will be at the VFW hall on Wednesday, Dec. 9, free for all Berwyn residents. You'll be able to speak to lawyers covering a variety of topics who can give you help on the spot and schedule appointments for more serious problems. The areas of law covered include the following:
- Personal Injury
- Workers Compensation
- Commercial Litigation claims
- Real Estate
- Quit Claims
- Child Custody
- Child Support
- Orders of Protection
- Non-payment of wages and overtime
- Sex, Race, Age & Gender Work-Place harrassment
- Estate Planning - Will/Trust
- Family Law, Mediation & Collaborative Practice
For more details, see the attached flier. I'm very excited about this new service. I hope it will help you out!
