Top Stories

Lee County Legal Aid Society teams with AARP for quarterly sessions open to those ages 50 and older; 20-minute individual consultations available on any topic

Lee County Legal AidA free legal clinic for Ft. Myers seniors in need of no-cost, limited legal advice is returning to downtown.

Law at the Library is a quarterly conversation sponsored by Lee County Legal Aid Society with support from AARP Foundation.

The next session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Ft. Myers Regional Library meeting room at 1651 Lee St., and is open to Lee County residents ages 50 and older.

A panel of three local attorneys will review several topics in civil law of interest to seniors, including landlord-tenant disputes; elder law; filing a case in small claims court; and issues stemming from the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, including post-disaster insurance claims and contractor fraud.

The panel’s 30-minute presentation will be followed by an audience question-and-answer session and then 20-minute individual appointments on any legal issue. Advance registration is required. Participants should email [email protected] with contact information, a brief description of the legal advice being sought, and any relevant documents.

Law at the Library follows a similar series of free legal workshops “Just for Seniors” offered by Lee County Legal Aid Society in prior years through support from The Community Foundation.
