On Saturday, April 13, another pop-up clinic will be hosted by the Superior Court Judges of the Western Circuit, in partnership with the University of Georgia School of Law and the Western Circuit Bar Association as part of the Access to Justice Initiative.

The clinic will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at First A.M.E. Church at 521 North Hull Street, Athens, GA 30601.

Judges from various courts, staff from the Probate Court and Georgia Legal Services, and faculty and students from the UGA School of Law will also be in attendance.

Attendees are encouraged to bring any relevant important papers with them. 

Attorneys will provide brief individual consultations on a variety of topics, including divorce and child support, adoption law, immigration law, expungement/record restriction, probate law, disability law, employment law, criminal law, small claims, landlord/tenant law, personal injury, and general civil law.

A list of legal service/attorney resources will be provided for individuals who may wish to seek further assistance beyond the pop-up clinic. Spanish translation services are also expected to be available.

The Access to Justice Initiative aims to help those in need in the community and help provide access to competent legal representation. Since the program started in December 2017, attorneys have donated over $50,000 of their time and talents at these free legal clinics.
