Lane County residents age 60 and older can now receive free legal consultations at the Springfield Public Library. The Senior Law Services program is from 2-4 p.m., two Wednesday afternoons each month. Senior Law Service provides civil (not criminal) legal services and focuses on serving those in the greatest economic or social need.
“As our population ages we are always looking for new services that can be offered in-house to our patrons,” said Library Director Emily David. “We are extremely pleased to be able to host this service in the library.”
Senior Law Service Program Director Jean Beachdel said collaborating with the Springfield Public Library opened the program up to a new sector of the community.
“The library is already a community hub and we are glad to be able to offer our services in this environment and to their patrons,” Beachdel said.
A free initial consultation is provided and additional pro bono work may also be provided depending upon the case details. Residents can book an appointment by calling 458.234.4261.s
Funding for the Senior Law Service comes from the Lane Council of Governments Area Agency on Aging Older Americans Act.
