For decades, United Way of Midland County has provided free, confidential legal advice through the Ask the Lawyer program. This impactful service will now be offered through a partnership between United Way and Legal Services of Eastern Michigan.

“We are excited about the collaboration between United Way and Legal Services,” stated Ann Fillmore, Executive Director of United Way of Midland County. “With their support, this important service will continue to provide low income residents with free legal advice.”

The first Ask the Lawyer session of the new year will be held on Thursday, January 17th.

Ask the Lawyer is held on the third Thursday of each month, January through November. All sessions are 15 minutes and will take place from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. at United Way of Midland County, located at 220 W. Main Street, Suite 100. There will also be a volunteer lawyer available to answer questions by phone. To schedule an appointment call Legal Services at 1-800-322-4512.
