Brief Advice and Referral Clinic

The Brief Advice and Referral Clinic provides Cleveland area residents an opportunity to discuss their civil legal problems with a volunteer attorney.  Residents receive general advice, information or referral to a variety of community resources which are available to assist residents in dealing with their legal issues.  Lawyers need not have any prior experience.  A brief orientation will be held at the beginning of the clinic.
On October 19,  the Northern District of Ohio Chapter of the Federal Bar Association is joining NEOACCA to volunteer at the Cleveland Legal Aid Society brief advice and referral clinic (“Clinic”).  The Clinic is being held at the Fatima Family Center located in Cleveland’s Hough neighborhood.

If you are interested in doing pro bono work, but unable to take on a long term service commitment, please join us Saturday for the Brief Advice and Referral Clinic.  The Brief Advice and Referral Clinic provides a safe, convenient and well organized opportunity for you to volunteer and make a difference for people in our community who do not have the resources to pay for legal advice.  The commitment involves only 3 hours of your time.  No prior training is required.  Attorneys, law clerks and students are all welcome.

We are also planning to use that day to acknowledge and support the beginning of Pro Bono Week for Legal Aid Society and Fatima Family Center's 40thanniversary of being in the Hough neighborhood by holding a toy, food and clothing drive.

Please consider donating non-perishable food items, new or gently-used clothing and new toys for this drive.  The toys will be distributed by the Fatima Family Center at their Christmas party in December and the food and clothing will be distributed by them following their normal practice.

Bring your donations to the Clinic on October 19. 

The Clinic will be held at the Fatima Center in Cleveland.
