Tuesdays at 5:30 pm
CFS Office (in the parking lot)
The Free Legal Aid Clinic (FLAC) needs some extra help to facilitate the virtual consultations with FLAC attorneys. Tasks include getting tablets to clients in their cars, sanitizing afterward, and helping clients with questions. All volunteers will be provided proper PPE and are expected to adhere to safety protocols. Volunteers are also fully vetted for this position, including background checks, and must be over 18 years old.
FLAC is an opportunity for individuals to receive private, free, and confidential legal advice and problem clarification from the attorneys from the Grand Traverse-Leelanau-Antrim Bar Association. Over 60 attorneys from the bar volunteer their time to the program and answer legal questions of all types. This services is made available by funding from Legal Services of Northern Michigan. FLAC has been here to help since 1976. In 2019, 471 individuals were served and 70 attorneys volunteered their times-that is over 300 hours of pro-bono work!
You can find out more information on FLAC here or if you are an attorney who is interested in participating as a pro bono attorney: Email Kathy Ann Blunk of Thompson O'Neil Law Firm or call (231) 929-9700.
