Free legal services offered to local low-income residents

Volunteers will be at the Palm Springs Public Library two times a month

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Volunteer attorneys will offer free family law and civil legal services to low-income local residents at the Palm Springs Public Library two times a month beginning in July, according to a release from Riverside County.

The services will be available to qualifying clients on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting July 8.

Officials said clients can meet privately with an attorney for advice and assistance after first meeting with an intake representative who will explain the process and see if the client qualifies for the services.

Appointments will be required but a limited number of walk-in appointments may also be available.

To make an appointment, call 760-347-9456.

If needed, assistance will be given to prepare documents to file with the court along with an explanation of how to file and serve them, according to the release.

The service is provided by local attorneys specializing in civil and family law and is sponsored by Riverside Legal Aid. For more information, visit riversidelegalaid.com.
