misc_none 6:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Lawyer in the Library Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Attorney George Derieg offers 15 minute free consultation and referrals on a wide variety of issues including estate planning, family, and criminal law. He does not cover landlord tenant disputes or foreclosures.

To make an appointment, please call (510) 795-2627 x7 when the library is open. If you are not going to be able to make your appointment, please call to cancel it.

The purpose of the consultation is to determine whether or not you have a legal problem and to provide guidance on how you might be able to solve your legal problem rather than for the attorney to provide in-depth legal analysis or advice. There is no continuing attorney/client relationship formed by your meeting with a volunteer attorney, but your discussion with the attorney will be confidential.
