VERMONT LEGAL AID CLINIC
An attorney from the Senior Citizens Law Project of Vermont Legal Aid will be conducting a free legal advice clinic for Vermonters age 60 and older at the Castleton Community Center on Thursday, June 27. This clinic is sponsored by Vermont Legal Aid and Senior Solutions. To sign up for a free 20-minute consultation, call 802-468-3093. The attorney will be able to give legal advice or referrals on a wide variety of legal problems, such as wills, powers of attorney, landlord-tenant issues, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, SSI, other public benefits, debt collection, consumer issues, guardianship, divorce, foreclosure, small claims, bankruptcy, and any other civil legal matter. However, the attorney can’t help with criminal cases or problems, and it must be your own problem and not a question about a problem involving your neighbor or another family member. If you have received any paperwork about the problem, please bring it with you.
