Free Legal Advice in WV for "Law Day"

May 1, 2007

Some of the best legal advice in West Virginia is free. Today is “Law Day,” which is dedicated to de-mystifying the legal process, educating people about the role of the court system in a democracy, and answering legal questions ranging from housing, to wills, to juvenile justice. Legal Aid spokeswoman Julie Palas says they're also dedicating time to kids and young adults. Hundreds of youth are involved in the legal system every month

"Let our youth know if they use their voices, they can be heard. They can stand up for their rights, and know more about the rights and responsibilities under our democracy."

Legal Aid doesn't charge for legal services. Palas says too often, justice is only available to those with money.

"We try to balance the scales of justice in West Virginia by making sure that people who can't afford legal representation can get it."

The open house celebrating Law Day, including free access to attorneys, is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Legal Aid office, 922 Quarrier Street East, Charleston
